PEI Faculty Seminar: “Power from Weakness: Enhancing Lithium-Ion Performance Through Piezoelectrochemical Stress”
Craig Arnold, the Susan Dod Brown Professor of Mechanical and Aerospace Engineering and director of the Princeton Institute for the Science and Technology of Materials (PRISM), will present “Power from Weakness: Enhancing Lithium-Ion Performance Through Piezoelectrochemical Stress” at 12:30 p.m. Tuesday, Nov. 5, in Guyot Hall, Room 10.
Because of their high energy densities and working voltages, lithium-ion batteries are the most suitable energy-storage choice for a variety of applications, from electric vehicles to implantable medical devices. Arnold will discuss how the mechanical and electrochemical stresses that lead to battery degradation can be taken advantage of to control and optimize lithium-ion battery performance.
Arnold is the third speaker in the Fall 2019 PEI Faculty Seminar Series, which is free and open to the public. Additional speakers and dates in this series are:
“The Geometry of Ecosystems in a Changing World”
Corina Tarnita, Associate Professor of Ecology and Evolutionary Biology
“Climatic Influences on Tropical Cyclones and Their Severity”
Gabriel Vecchi, Professor of Geosciences and the Princeton Environmental Institute
“Sustainable Urban Food Systems and Food Action Planning in the U.S. and India”
Anu Ramaswami, Sanjay Swani ’87 Professor of India Studies and Professor of Civil and Environmental Engineering, the Princeton Institute for International and Regional Studies, and the Princeton Environmental Institute
