2017 Spring Journal Club

04/07/2017 Victor Hu leads the first discussion on flow batteries for the first journal club meeting this spring. He will mainly cover the principles, pros, and cons of all-vanadium and Zinc/Bromine flow batteries. Link for the open access papar: https://link.springer.com/article/10.1007/s10800-011-0348-2

2016 Fall Journal Club: Materials

11/17/2016, Characterizing Nanomaterials for Batteries We are glad to have Grant Williamson presenting on characterizing nanomaterials for batteries. Nanomaterial characterization is a way to understand the correlation between atomic changes and electrochemical performances. Some investigation techniques such as SEM, TEM, AFM, XRD can identify the surface topologies or structural refinements of functional materials. 10/10/2016, Battery Materials Robert kicked Read More …
