TUT 2: Recent Advances in Solid State Electrolytes for Energy Storage - Detailed Agenda

Marca Doeff, Ph.D., Scientist, Lawrence Berkeley National Lab

Josh Buettner-Garrett, Ph.D., CTO, SolidPower

Steve W. Martin, Ph.D., Distinguished Professor, University Professor, Department of Materials Science & Engineering, Iowa State University of Science & Technology

Dangerous liquid electrolytes are employed over solid electrolytes due to their high conductivities and excellent interfacial behavior. However, current research is narrowing the gap between liquid and solid electrolytes. This course will provide a review of advances in solid electrolyte, from material synthesis, to practical device applications.

TUT 4: Battery Safety and Abuse Tolerance Validation - Detailed Agenda

Brian M. Barnett, Ph.D., Vice President, TIAX LLC

John Turner, Ph.D., Group Leader, Computational Engineering & Energy Sciences, Oak Ridge National Lab & UT-Battelle 

Rich Byczek, Global Director, Business Development, Intertek Transportation   

Safety of the Li-Ion battery will have the greatest impact on the market acceptance of the technology in automotive and stationary applications. In this tutorial, we will discuss safety-enhancing technology and the validation of battery safety under ordinary and abusive conditions.
