New advances in battery design

June 5, 2011

MIT researchers have developed a new technique to recharge batteries more quickly, using an innovative architecture called a semi-solid flow cell, in which solid particles are suspended in a carrier liquid and pumped through the system. This research comes from work performed by Professors Craig Carter and Yet-Ming Chiang and their collaborators Mihai Duduta, Bryan Ho, Pimpa Limthongkul, Vanessa Wood, Victor Brunini, Prof. Angela Belcher, Prof. Paula Hammond (ChemE), and Rutgers University Professor Glenn Amatucci.
