Self Assembled Film Injected Battery
2014 Seed Grant
Batteries provide excellent storage capabilities, but have always had limitations within couplings of lifetime stability, energy and power. Dan Steingart and his team believe they can break this coupling with a new fuel cell design that leverages traditional battery materials. To date semi solid flow cells have had power limitations as they try to maintain too much fuel within a reactor. In their new design they are trying to minimize the reactor volume to maximize power through thin film assembly and disassembly.
Professor Steingart is developing an experimental module for his Energy Storage Class that demonstrate, in simple labs, the relationship between power and energy.
