Abstract (Summary)

While batteries of various chemistries have been responsible for powering everything from small electronics to cars to medical devices, the need for energy storage continues to increase. This increase is in both volume and in scale, as energy storage systems are increasingly being evaluated for inclusion into both larger and broader applications. An important factor to consider with batteries is the end application, as each chemistry and battery system has specific benefits as well as limitations. This necessitates development of a wide range of battery chemistries as well as substantive improvements to these chemistries and their integration on the material, electrode, and systems level. Herein, this work will present on a multi-scale level, different energy storage studies can that are geared to address the demands and needs of varying applications. To highlight the diversity and uniqueness of the required breadth of approaches, several systems are presented in combination with different characterization techniques and analysis relevant to the system. Highlights include proof of concept and development of a self-forming, rechargeable solid state battery, materials development for Lithium Sulfur (Li-S) batteries, electrochemical and characterization techniques to elucidate materials properties, and utilizing theoretical calculations to compliment experimental observations.
