Novel Chemistries and Materials for Grid-Scale Energy Storage: Quinones and Halogen Catalysis
In this work I describe various approaches to electrochemical energy storage at the grid-scale. Chapter 1 provides an introduction to energy storage and an overview of the history and development of flow batteries. Chapter ...
Diffusion, Deformation, and Damage in Lithium-Ion Batteries and Microelectronics
This thesis explores mechanical behavior of microelectronic devices and lithium-ion batteries. We first examine electromigration-induced void formation in solder bumps by constructing a theory that couples electromigration ...
