Welcome Note (Chairperson: Dr. John Warner – Chief Customer Officer at American Battery Solutions)

About Dr. John Warner

Professor Kelsey Hatzell - Princeton University

PRINCETON UNIVERSITY (Tutorial A): Seeing is Believing – Insights into X-Ray and Electron Imaging Tools for Solid State Batteries

This tutorial will survey the range of characterization tools available for dynamically examining solid state batteries. The tutorial will discuss the opportunities and trade-offs for the various interrogation probes. X-ray and electron tools will be discussed in detail as they relate to alkali metal anodes and high voltage cathodes.

About Professor Kelsey Hatzell - Princeton University

Professor Zhenan Bao and Rachel Huang – Stanford University

STANFORD UNIVERSITY (Tutorial B): Organic Material Design for Lithium Batteries

This talk will cover material design studies for both lithium metal batteries (LMBs) and Li-ion batteries (LIBs): Polymer coatings and liquid electrolytes for LMBs; porous current collectors for hybrid LMBs and LIBs; polymer-based safe, stretchable, or recyclable electrolytes for LIBs.
