Nanowire Research Aimed at Improving Lithium-Ion Batteries (audio) University of California - San Diego Share Print E-Mail Loading audio... Caption A conversation with UC San Diego electrical engineering professor Shadi Dayeh about nanowire research that could lead to tailored volume expansion of lithium ion battery electrodes. This could potentially minimize their cracking, improve their durability, and perhaps influence how one could think about different electrode architectures. Dayeh is a professor in the Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering at the UC San Diego Jacobs School of Engineering. His Integrated Electronics and Bio-interfaces Lab is at: http://iebl.ucsd.edu/.
