Darren Tan and Professor Dr. Y. Shirley Meng - University of California, San Diego (UCSD)

UC SAN DIEGO (Tutorial A): All Solid-State Batteries and the Future of Energy Storage

Sulfide based all solid-state batteries have seen tremendous progress in recent years. However, several barriers still need to be overcome before its commercialization. Here, we discuss some obstacles faced by sulfide based solid electrolytes such as interfacial stability, characterization challenges and evaluate prototyping strategies for manufacturing scalability. Finally, we discuss potential strategies toward a sustainable […]

Professor Yuan Yang - Columbia University

COLUMBIA UNIVERSITY (Tutorial B): Solid-State Batteries – Principles, Progress and Challenges

Solid-state batteries are attractive solutions for next-generation energy storage, as they are expected to achieve higher energy density and better thermal stability. This tutorial will present the working principles of different solid state battery systems, followed by current progress and challenges in the field. Both polymer-based and ceramic solid electrolytes will be covered.

Jason Siegel - University of Michigan

UNIVERSITY OF MICHIGAN (Tutorial E): Enhanced Battery State of Health Diagnostics With Battery Mechanical Monitoring

In this talk, we will investigate the challenges and opportunities for using mechanical measurements of the battery swelling during lithiation and delithiation to enhance both the state of charge estimation and the state of health diagnostics. The battery swelling can easily be measured as the outward force with load cells when clamped to a fixed […]
