A collaboration between theorist and experimental researchers from the RS2E was awarded an international prize. Thanks to simulations and experiments, they achieved a main breakthrough in “blue energy” exploitation.
Laurent Bernard proposed this year an ambitious project to understand and overcome the ionic conduction mechanism of the new “hot” lithium solid-state batteries material: the solid polymer electrolyte from the start-up Ionic Material.
Matthew McDowell was awarded the YESS Award 2018 second prize for his audacious project “Overcoming Chemo-Mechanical Degradation in Solid-State Battery Electrolytes”. This project is the result of a coherent academic career.
