The Department of Energy has awarded a grant to Dr. Jun Xu for the $1-million research project “Enabling Advanced Electrode Architecture Through Printing Technique.”
The project involves the research and development of a novel printing process for high-volume electrode production with controlled electrode architecture. This technology will be used to enable manufacturing lithium-ion batteries (LIBs) with fast-charging capability, while maintaining the cost competitiveness, required energy density and safety performance.
Dr. Jun Xu’s group has pioneered modeling and characterization of the fundamental multidisciplinary nature of battery safety issues at various length scales. In addition, by adopting machine learning technology, more accurate, robust and efficient safety design, evaluation, categorization and monitoring of next-generation batteries can be achieved.
The group’s recent highlighted publications in Advanced Energy Materials, Nano Energy, Journal of Materials Chemistry A, and ACS Applied Materials & Interfaces can be found via:
