Lithium-Ion Battery Materials
Lithium Ion Battery Anode and Cathode Materials
Two new collaborative projects are being carried out between our group and the Argonne National Laboratory on synthesis and characterization of advanced anode materials for lithium ion batteries.
High Temperature Corrosion Resistance
An innovative plasma process for applying high temperature corrosion resistant intermetallic coatings (Fe3AI)
The new coating process is based on a plasma transferred arc technique, combining merits while avoiding shortcomings, of several conventional coating processes, namely thermal spray, CVD, and weld-overlay techniques. Thick or thin (50 microns to >1 mm) phase-pure Fe3Al coatings without porosity have been applied on steel substrates for applications in coal-fired environments.
