“We’re able to integrate advanced material components into a complete battery, analyze how it performs and better understand how to improve it,” Claus Daniel, deputy director of ORNL’s Sustainable Transportation Programs, said in a statement. “With this capability, we can isolate and evaluate a material or process and quantify any advantage that each would provide.”
Daniel said they were moving closer to creating a longer lasting batteries.
“ORNL’s combination of equipment and expertise allows collaborators to develop and optimize processes, manufacturing schemes, perform diagnostics and maximize yield,” Daniel said. “Working with industry, we’re advancing the field and moving closer to creating a battery that will allow automobiles to travel longer distances on a single charge.”
Funding for the project was provided by DOE’s Office of Energy Efficiency and Renewable Energy. UT-Battelle manages ORNL for the Office of Science, the single largest supporter of basic research in the physical sciences in the U.S.
