Abstract:
The Indiana University Nanoscience Center is sponsoring a workshop on advanced battery technologies from 8:30 a.m. to 5 p.m. on Friday, Nov. 13, in the IU Bloomington Chemistry Department. The workshop is an outgrowth of a major two-day Energy Conference held at IU Bloomington and Indiana University-Purdue University Indianapolis in August.

Nanoscience Center sponsors workshop on future of batteries

Bloomington, IN | Posted on November 4th, 2009

The workshop will explore current battery research and future directions for developing high-power and high-energy density batteries needed for transportation and renewable energy applications.

With contributors from IU Bloomington, IUPUI, Ohio State University, Illinois Institute of Technology, industry and government laboratories, the workshop will focus on identifying areas of mutual interest and developing regional collaborations.

Confirmed speakers include:

* Lane Baker (Chemistry, IU)
* Lyudmila Bronstein (Chemistry, IU)
* John Carini (Physics, IU)
* Jian Xie (IUPUI)
* Ganesan Nagasubramanian (Sandia National Laboratory)
* Jai Prakash (Illinois Institute of Technology)
* Krishnan Raghavachari (Chemistry, IU)
* Paul Sokol (Physics, IU)
* Yiying Wu (Ohio State University)
* Sue Waggoner (Crane Naval Surface Warfare Center)

The chair of the organizing committee, Lyudmila Bronstein from the IU Bloomington Department of Chemistry, says battery research is an emerging research area for IU that has important implications for Indiana and beyond. IU's Nanoscience Center is concerned with studying the physical, chemical, and biological properties of objects with dimensions between 1 and 100 nanometers. A nanometer is one billionth (1/1,000,000,000) of a meter. In comparison, a hair is 100,000 nanometers wide.

Objects in the 1 to 100 nanometer size range have special and unexpected properties. Scientists at IU and elsewhere believe these unusual properties mean that nanoscale materials can make critical contributions to energy research and development.

Registration for the battery workshop is required. There is no fee but seating is limited. To register please go to www.surveymonkey.com/s.aspx?sm=JJThgEeUfd5U_2fKkh1EenIw_3d_3d.
