"Modeling Batteries and Quantum Dots"
February 23 @ 9:00 AM - 11:00 AM - Birck 1001
This talk will cover two very different areas where computational modeling can help guide experiment. The first concerns Li-ion batteries, which are
increasingly used as a way to reduce the carbon footprint associated with transportation, but which can, under abusive conditions, pose a safety hazard. I will discuss efforts at Sandia to develop a predictive modeling capability for battery safety, starting with atomic-scale density functional theory and connecting through the mesoscaleto continuum-level cell simulations.
