Advanced Graphene Battery Technology
GOALS: For students to learn the theory and gain the skills necessary to fabricate next-generation batteries for EVs, spacecraft, and Smart Cities infrastructure.
METHODS & TECHNOLOGIES: Battery assembly and testing, epitaxial thin film growth and characterization, electrical and mechanical testing.
RESEARCH/DESIGN ISSUES: Fabrication of graphene-based coin cell batteries to compare to market standard Lithium-ion batteries will be a focus of the class. Performance testing, lifetime and stability testing, and the integration of next-gen storage devices will be research topics.
