Be it improving energy density or cycle life or reducing cost, understanding the failure modes of batteries in a non-destructive mode is critical during the design, product development, and manufacturing of lithium ion batteries. Electrochemical impedance spectroscopy (EIS) provides the ability to access and decouple the failure modes based on the processes’ time scale. Analysis of recorded EIS can be done either through phenomenological modelling or equivalent circuit modelling, with each having its own pros and cons.

This webinar reviews the basics of applying EIS for understanding the phenomena in lithium ion batteries, the experimental details and protocols, and the types of models with a few case studies. (more…)

Ali OthmanAli Othman, PhD, Receives Prestigious Award

Ali Othman, PhD, Research Associate in Clarkson University’s Department of Chemical & Biomolecular Science, received The Electrochemical Society’s prestigious 2021 ECS Colin Garfield Fink Fellowship. The fellowship provides financial assistance for Othman’s research in the months of June through August. His work focuses nanomaterials and the interface chemistry of materials and their bio(sensing) and environmental applications.

“I am truly grateful for the ECS Colin Garfield Fink Fellowship, donors, and committee of the award,” said Dr. Othman. “This fellowship highlights me and allows me to be recognized in the scientific community as well as to focus on my goal and additional educational opportunities. Thanks to your support, I am one step closer to my goal. I will do my best to keep up the great work.” (more…)

Recent advances in materials, mechanics, and manufacturing establish the foundations for high performance classes of microfluidic lab-on-a-chip technologies that have physical properties matched to those of human skin. The resulting devices can integrate with the surface of the skin in a water-tight yet physically imperceptible fashion, to provide continuous, clinical-quality biochemical information on physiological status via capture, storage, and in situ analysis of sweat. This talk summarizes key ideas and presents specific recent examples in skin-interfaced microfluidic technologies designed for applications in sports performance, worker safety, and nutritional monitoring.
