SHELiB is Solid High Energy Lithium Batteries

Xavier University of Louisiana (XULA), Georgia Institute of Technology (GA Tech), Auburn University (AU), US Army Research laboratory (ARL), and NASA Glenn Research Center (GRC) investigators are collaborating to study the interfacial properties of electrodes and solid electrolytes. The goal is to improve transport and stability across the interfaces that will lead to the development of Solid High Energy Lithium Batteries (SHELiB)
XULA is one the premier institutions in graduating African American students in biology, chemistry, and physics. This project will contribute to that trend of improving diversity in the STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics) workforce by engaging students from underrepresented minority groups in cutting-edge research in energy storage technologies for Space, one of NASA’s most critical projects. Together with its academic and national laboratory partners, XULA will build a collaborative environment that will prepare students to tackle problems of critical importance to our nation’s future.
