Research led by Professor Yang Shao-Horn found that “Gold standard” material for generating oxygen from water divulges its molecular mechanisms.
A new design from Professor Yang Shao-Horn and Professor Douglas Hart could greatly extend the shelf life of single-use metal-air batteries for electric vehicles, off-grid storage, and other applications.
Professor Yang Shao-Horn has developed a new approach to analyzing and designing ion conductors that could help uncover better materials for next-generation lithium batteries.
