Battery Electrode Synthesis, Testing, Safety and in situ Diagnostics

PURDUE UNIVERSITY

Tom Adams, Corey Love, Vilas Pol & Vikas Tomar

Overview: Work with an interdisciplinary team with expertise in lithium ion battery manufacturing, in-situ nanomechanical testing, and battery health management. Focus of the summer study is on hands-on-training in manufacturing of energy devices, hands-on-training in in-situ chemical and mechanical diagnostics, and device performance analysis. Cadet/Midshipman will be exposed to a variety of spectroscopic measurements and electron microscopy measurement techniques. Exposure also includes training in chemical handing of new types of energy materials and develop of new processing methods.

Preferred academic backgrounds include: Mechanical Engineering, Systems Engineering, Mechanics, Chemistry, Chemical Engineering, Physics, Nuclear Engineering, Aeronautical Engineering, Astronautical Engineering and Space Ops.
