Li-Ion Battery Design, Fabrication and Testing
Credits: 3
Grad Meth: Reg, P-F, Aud
Restriction: Permission of ENGR-Materials Science & Engineering department.
Students learn the basics of Li-ion battery fabrication through hands-on manufacturing of Li-ion cells. Students will create cells using different active materials and different electrode loadings, then test their batteries to understand how different electrode designs affect cell performance. Students will gain experience with standard constant current-constant voltage cycling tests, and will also learn about electrochemical impedance spectroscopy (EIS), cyclic voltammetry (CV) and other electrochemical testing methods as time allows. Topical issues related to materials for the battery field will also be discussed.
