Podcast: The “Battery” of Materials Modeling Efforts at Argonne

Nicole Hemsoth

A rechargeable lithium-air (Li-air) battery can potentially store five to ten times the energy of a lithium-ion battery of the same weight. As one can imagine, moving toward this goal is quite the priority. We’ll talk today with Dr. Larry Curtiss, a materials scientist at Argonne National Lab about how his team is modeling materials and processes to create more efficient batteries—and what it means for the future.
