Basic working principles of batteries
Monday, September 30, 2019 - 3:00pm
Venue: 
Skilling Auditorium
Speaker: 
Prof. Will Chueh (Stanford)
Abstract / Description: 

We will introduce the four main components of a battery: positive electrode, negative electrode, electrolyte, and current collector. A battery is classified by the phase of the electrode, electrolyte, energy carrier and type of chemical reaction. We will briefly introduce lithium-ion, solid-state, liquid metal, sodium sulfur and lithium air battery chemistries. Finally, we will discuss charging and discharging characteristics.
