Yu, Yang Receive DOE Grant to Design Novel Energy Storage Materials
Two University of Maine researchers will use artificial intelligence-aided design to develop new materials for improved batteries and supercapacitors.
Both Yu and Yang are associate members of the Frontier Institute for Research in Sensor Technologies (FIRST) at UMaine. FIRST is providing support for an additional graduate student to work on the project. A closed interactive feedback loop between theory and experiment is being established that leverages both the DOE-user facilities at ORNL and materials synthesis and characterization capabilities within FIRST and other laboratories at UMaine.
