Barbara Hughes, Ph.D., Research Scientist at Forge Nano will present her poster Manufacturing of Low Cost Nano-Coatings for High Performance Battery Materials at the International Conference on Advanced Lithium Batteries for Automobile Applications (ABAA-10) on October 22 – 25, 2017 in Chicago, IL.

The 9th edition will start on 17th of October 2016 and it will be a 3.5 days’ conference where academia and battery and automotive industry will showcase the latest research and development in advanced lithium batteries focused on automotive applications, which are critical to achieve fuel-efficient automobiles such as hybrid electrical vehicles (HEV), plug-in hybrid electric vehicles (PHEV), and pure electric vehicles (EV).

This event will feature talks and posters on materials research, electrochemistry and battery engineering delivered by international experts. Topics will include:

– Development of novel materials: cathodes, anodes, electrolytes and electrolyte additives.
– Safety and degradation mechanisms of lithium ion batteries.
– System design including the latest market trends affecting the automotive industry.
– New chemistries for energy storage.
