Diego built a ball-and-stick physical model of an intercalation compound and simulated the same in Mathematica software.
Arlette studied the mechanics of battery materials upon repeated charging and learnt the importance of mitigating structural degradation in cathode materials.
Henoke wrote codes in mathematica to visualize the atomic structure of intercalation battery materials.
Ben simulated ferroelectric microstructures that improved the efficiency of an energy harvester.
Carl designed microstructures in shape-memory-alloys to enhance their actuation strains.
Riah did an analytical study of structural deformations in battery materials.
Devesh is studying how light induces phase transformation in organo-metallic compounds causing them to bend, twist, or stretch.
Delin is conducting research on how battery microstructures can be crystallographically designed to mitigate volume changes and internal stresses.
Tao is investigating how battery materials fracture and how microstructural patterns form during charge/discharge cycles.
We dope a phase-transforming V2O5 electrode to reduce structural distortions during charge/discharge processes.
