HERA designed a laboratory for Georgia Tech professors performing research on electrochemical energy storage. The shared space promotes continued collaboration while reducing GT’s need for duplicated and redundant battery manufacturing equipment in individual labs. It provides a safe environment for reactive chemicals such as lithium and sodium. This space enables GT to pursue unique opportunities that are critical for the development of battery systems, including a battery “pouch cell” assembly line.
Research groups within the laboratory focus on:
Laboratory equipment includes cell fabrication, electrochemical testers, powder processing tools, glove boxes, gas flow furnaces for materials growth, high temperature furnaces, an atomic layer deposition system, a furnace for growth of single-crystal materials, an electrical measurement station, a chamber for low temperature electrochemical measurements, and a thermal evaporation system.
