Next Generation Energy Storage: Kent Griffith & David Halat

Battery and Supercapacitor Technology

Solid state chemistry plays a major role in energy storage for everything from batteries in cell phones and laptops to supercapacitors in buses and airplanes. How do these devices work and what will advances in solid state chemistry mean for the next generation of energy storage?

Kent is a PhD student, a Churchill Scholar and a Herschel Smith Scholar. He is interested in the relationship between structure and electrochemical energy storage. His research focuses on the application of solid state nuclear magnetic resonance (ssNMR) to solid state electrochemistry, specifically pseudocapacitors.

Presented at Churchill College, 29th October 2014.
