Automated, High Throughput Screening of Increased Ionic Conductivity Polymer Electrolytes

Speaker: Dr. Johanna J. Schwartz, Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory
Moderator: Dr. Jason Killgore, National Institute of Standards and Technology
Friday, January 19, 2024 from 2:00 PM – 3:00 PM EST (UTC-5)

Webinar Details:

Advancement of increased ionic conductivity polymer electrolyte materials for Li-ion battery applications has traditionally required formulations to be hand-mixed by researchers, limiting progress and adding potential batch-to-batch variability. Through our Studying-Polymers-On a-Chip (SPOC) platform, we seek to solve the challenge of developing safe, stable, and cost effective batteries. We do so by accelerating screening of polymer electrolyte materials through integration of additive manufacturing, impedance characterization, and machine learning experimental planning systems. Various monomers, salts, and nanoparticle fillers were screened to modify the amorphous character in semicrystalline polyethylene glycol-based polymer electrolytes. Ultimately, long-term cycling, aging, and stability measurements need to be made for identified polymer electrolytes to be useful for battery applications. The end of the talk will discuss some of our ongoing SPOC platform developments to create and couple high-throughput aging and degradation assessments into our screening platform.

When Choosing Lightweight Materials, Don’t Forget 100% Solids UV/EB Coatings!

Speaker: Michael Bonner, Saint Clair Systems Inc.
Thursday, February 29, 2024 from 2:00 PM – 3:00 PM EST

Webinar Details:

With electrification across every industry today – most notably in the transportation sector – Advanced lightweight materials are essential. Unfortunately, coatings are generally ignored. But in Formula 1 – where every gram counts – coatings are carefully selected to provide superior performance at weights less than one-tenth that of a conventional passenger car. In this webinar, we will examine how UV/EB technology provides greater durability with thinner films, meaning lower weight, translating to lower energy demands for a vehicle.
