Gogotsi and Barsoum Receive $1M DOE BATT Program Grant

 Gogotsi

Trustee Chair Professor Yury Gogotsi (PI), and A. W. Grosvenor Professor Michel Barsoum (Co-PI) have been awarded a grant from the  US Department of Energy's Batteries for Advanced Transportation Technologies (BATT) Program for “New Layered Nanolaminates for use in Lithium Battery Anodes.”  The budget for the four-year project is $1,000,000. 
 
Their research will focus on the development of laminate MAX-phase based anode materials that combine the

laminate structure of graphite with silicon, tin, and other elements that can provide a higher Li uptake per atom and lead to improved capacity, lesser expansion, longer cycle life, and a lower cost compared to current Li-ion battery anodes.

The BATT Program was created to develop high-performance, rechargeable batteries for electric vehicles and hybrid-electric vehicles and is funded by the US Department of Energy Office of Vehicle Technologies and administered by the Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory.
