RESEARCH & DISCOVERIES
Current Areas of Research
Li-S battery has five times the amount of the current Li-ion batteries, which is significantly advantageous for future applications. However, the actual performance is severely limited, mostly caused by the electrolyte. Currently, our group is working on suppressing the shuttling effect through various modifications.
Flash sintering of ceramics is the new sintering technique. It can decrease the sintering temperature and time, which is potentially a better way to manufacture ceramics with less energy. The mechanisms are being studied in our research.
SOLUBLE-LEAD FLOW BATTERY
SLFBs are excellent for large-scale energy storage that is facing the challenge of short cycle life. Our research focuses on modifying the electrode and adding additives to increase the life cycle.
We believe that focusing on new materials for energy storage devices is not enough if we did not start to recycle spent batteries. Hence, we are also studying how to increase recycling efficiency and decrease the cost of battery recycling.
