Our center consists of the Energy Storage Research Group and the Advanced Power Prototype Laboratories. It is an interdisciplinary group consisting of faculty and an equal mix of professional staff, graduate and undergraduate students. Our charter is the development and understanding of next generation energy storage materials and energy storage devices. Batteries are extremely complex devices with fundamental electronic transport phenomena on par with the field of semiconductors and ionic transport phenomena with similarity to physiological processes. On one hand we are firmly entrenched in the basic energy and material sciences and perform novel material synthesis and characterization of reaction mechanisms. On the other hand, we develop device structures and engineering which transform these and other state of the art materials to a practical device. One of our main specialties is the development of novel power technologies which may have a significant impact to the biomedical field. The biomedical space is becoming ever more reliant on energy storage and conversion to enable a new realm of autonomy in the form of independent and networked sensors, stimulators, and drug delivery devices along with its stellar history of pacemakers and defibrillators.
