Physics Doctoral Student Yan Li and Faculty

Yan Li defended her PhD dissertation “First-Principles Investigations of Electrolytes Materials in All-Solid-State Batteries” on October 21st. Solid electrolytes have attracted significant interest due to the emerging interest in developing all-solid-state batteries. This has the potential for superior safety, high energy density, and long lifespan. The general purpose of her work is to apply computational techniques to explain and predict the structural and ionic transport properties of solid electrolyte materials. She is pictured here after her defense with her committee.
