Welcome Back to in-person Colloquiums!
A reception will be held in Olin Lounge* at 3:30 PM prior to the colloquium. All interested persons are cordially invited to attend.
*We encourage all to wander out to the front entrance of the building or up to the Observatory Deck on the 3rd floor to enjoy their refreshments.

ABSTRACT

Research into solid electrolytes has recently attracted significant interest along with the emerging demands of developing all-solid-state batteries with major benefits of superior safety, high energy density, and long lifespan. The general purpose of our work is to apply first principles calculations and other computational techniques to reliably explain and predict the detailed structural and ionic transport properties of known and designed solid electrolyte materials. The contents of this colloquium has a few overlaps with my Ph.D. defense presentation on Thursday, October 21, 2021. In this talk, I will discuss two ongoing research projects in more detail: one is on Li ion conducting boracites, and the other is on a recently reported family of materials having the composition Li7.5B10S18X1.5 (X = Cl, Br, I).
