Electrolyte research by Clemson physicists could lead to cheaper high-capacity batteries.

Three members of Rao’s lab- Mihir Parekh, postdoctoral fellow, and graduate students Janak Basel and Nawraj Sapkota have discovered a way to optimize electrolytes to address the short circuiting and rapid capacity loss problems in sodium-ion batteries. These batteries are less expensive and more readily available than lithium-ion batteries.  Dr. Rao and members of his […]
