INKS AND INTERFACES LAB
The Inks and Interfaces Lab works on multifunctional coatings and understanding phenomena at solid|liquid and solid|solid interfaces. Fundamentally we are interested in an array of different applications related to solid state batteries, electrochemical fuel production, printing, water desalination, and separations application. We focus on understanding far-from equilibrium material systems and utilizes a suite of x-ray and neutron techniques to understand these systems. Our approach toward understanding materials and nano-scale phenomena is multidisciplinary and bridges theory and experiment.

This paper examines multi-material manufacturing approaches for active coatings. Solid electrolytes are examples of material systems that are functional coatings. Scalable manufacturing of solid electrolytes is the bottleneck toward all solid state batteries.
This paper examines the roles extrinsic interfaces (e.g. electrode|electrolyte) play on battery performance. Ion conductors that combine hard and soft materials will display variable physical properties (e.g. adhesion) which may impact Li+ transport and delamination.
This paper evaluates charge transport mechanisms in flowable electrodes. Capacitive flowable electrodes may be a path toward scalable brackish water treatment.
