Yet-Ming Chiang's rechargeable battery is safe and powerful enough to be used in efficient hybrid cars - and Detroit has taken notice.
With two other men, he founded A123Systems in Watertown. Since then, the company has developed a battery based on metal phosphates that functions through nanotechnology and that can be recharged by plugging it into any home outlet. The new battery already has been central to work on two hybrid vehicles being developed by General Motors - the Saturn Vue plug-in and the Chevrolet Volt. "I wanted to accomplish something I can point to and say, 'Research I did led to this thing having an impact on people's lives,' " Chiang says.
