Dr. Jangwoo Kim will present new exciting battery technology discovered in the Battery Lab at IBM Research-Almaden that outperforms the existing lithium-ion battery in multiple measures. Depending on the application, these family of batteries can be modified to deliver on critical performance factors. During this session, Jangwoo Kim will share the years-long research and development process behind the discovery of this new kind of battery in the lab, reveal the complex chemistry involved in the electrochemical reaction during charge and discharge, and discuss the remaining challenges for bringing these batteries out of the lab and into commercial and industrial applications.
