1-1:05 pm: Introduction and Welcome

1:05 - 1:30 pm: The Future of Solid State Batteries for Electric Vehicles
- Marca Doeff, LBL

Abstract: Solid state batteries may have significant advantages over conventional lithium ion battery designs due to enhanced safety and the possibility of using lithium metal anodes instead of graphite, which can increase energy density significantly. This talk will cover the challenges that must be overcome to develop solid state batteries for the electric vehicle market, using examples from the author’s own research.

1:30-1:35 pm: Q&A

1:35-2:00 pm: Visualizing heterogeneous charge and discharge in individual nanoparticles for Li-ion batteries
- Yiyang Li, Stanford University

Abstract: We use in situ X-ray microscopy to track the migration of lithium within individual nanoparticles during the charge and discharge of a Li-ion battery. Our results show that lithium insertion is highly nonuniform even within individual battery particles.

2:00-2:05 pm: Q&A

2:05-2:20 pm: Coffee Break

2:20-2:45 pm: Battery Cycle Life Extension by Charging Algorithm to Reduce IOT Cost of Ownerships
- Naoki Matsumura, Intel

Abstract: IOT devices expect Li-ion battery to have a long cycle life because they may be used in areas where battery replacement is not easy. This session talks about a method to extend battery cycle life through battery charging algorithm. This is expected to reduce the cost of ownership as it enables less battery replacement.

2:50-3:15 pm: An Advanced Bipolar Silicon-Lead Technology for Renewable Energy Applications
- Collin Mui, Gridtential

Abstract: Innovations in lead battery technology that improve performance and can leverage existing infrastructures are the most desirable for renewable energy storage. Silicon Joule TM Technology features an advanced silicon-lead battery design that integrates silicon wafer current collectors into the bipolar battery architecture.

3:15-3:20 pm: Q&A

3:20-3:30 pm: Wrap up

All presentations will be requested to be posted on the TFUG Proceedings webpage.
