PhD Defence | Electrode Design for Durable and Energy-Dense Rechargeable Zinc-Air Batteries, by Zachary CanoExport this event to calendar

Friday, December 13, 2019 — 1:30 PM EST

You are welcome to attend Zachary Cano's PhD defence, in which he will discuss his research into the viability of zinc-air batteries in electric vehicles, including the investigation of the use of nickel-based air electrodes.

Abstract 

Zinc-air batteries have been proposed as a low-cost and energy-dense candidate to replace or supplement lithium-ion batteries in electric vehicles. This thesis explores the viability of zinc-air batteries in electric vehicles and experimentally investigates the use of nickel-based air electrodes. The failure mechanism of these electrodes is uncovered, and a new nickel-based air electrode, which has both an improved cycle life and a substantially lower mass and volume than previous designs, is presented.
