Rechargeable batteries and electric vehicles are becoming more important as we work to protect the environment and our planet. Massachusetts Institute of Technology associate professor Betar Gallant and PhD student Rui Guo are using the CLS to understand how the chemistry of rechargeable batteries shifts, in sometimes surprising ways. This granular view of how lithium metal and the electrolyte evolve helps to guide battery design. Developing this technology will be key as we move toward heavier use of electric vehicles and going green.
