Researchers Determine Optimum Pressure to Improve the Performance of Lithium Metal Batteries

October 18, 2021

A team of materials scientists and chemists has determined the proper stack pressure that lithium metal batteries, or LMBs, need to be subjected to during battery operation in order to produce optimal performance.

Ultrasound device improves charge time and run time in lithium batteries

February 18, 2020

Researchers at the University of California San Diego developed an ultrasound-emitting device that brings lithium metal batteries, or LMBs, one step closer to commercial viability. Although the research team focused on LMBs, the device can be used in any battery, regardless of chemistry.

UC San Diego Selected as Energy Storage North America 2016 Innovation Award Winner

October 18, 2016

The campus was recognized for its innovation and leadership in energy storage, winning in the “Mobility” category for a project that combines the fastest electric vehicle charging technology, second-life battery energy storage and integration of solar energy.

These Energy-Packed Batteries Work Well in Extreme Cold and Heat

July 4, 2022

Researchers developed lithium-ion batteries that perform well at freezing cold and scorching hot temperatures, while packing a lot of energy. This could help electric cars travel farther on a single charge in the cold and reduce the need for cooling systems for the cars’ batteries in hot climates.

Scientists at UC San Diego Receive $10M Department of Energy Grant to Promote Battery Recycling

December 8, 2022

A team including scientists at the University of California San Diego has been chosen to lead a $10M project to promote battery recycling and reuse. It’s part of a $74M award from the United States Department of Energy program on Bipartisan Infrastructure Law.

New Material is Next Step Toward Stable High-voltage Long-life Solid-state Sodium-ion Batteries

February 23, 2021

A team of researchers designed and manufactured a new sodium-ion conductor for solid-state sodium-ion batteries that is stable when incorporated into higher-voltage oxide cathodes. This new solid electrolyte could dramatically improve the efficiency and lifespan of this class of batteries.
