Abstract

Energy storage is needed everywhere from outer space to the electrical grid to deep underground. My group and I now target improved cell and battery safety and performance in harsh conditions (e.g. at temperatures above 100°C, commonly encountered in oil and gas wells). In parallel, we use harsh environments to understand the dynamic phase behavior of materials. Our vision is to leverage oil and gas well drilling technology, application demands, and funding to enable very low cost, clean, and safe energy storage. This talk will describe how we use materials physics challenges to drive test and characterization infrastructure development, and use our enabling hardware to drive materials physics.

Biography

Mike Fleischauer is a physicist and engineer. He earned his MSc (Physics, 2003) and PhD (2005) at Dalhousie University (Halifax, Nova Scotia) before his NSERC / Ingenuity / Killam Postdoctoral Fellowship at the University of Alberta. Mike joined the National Research Council - National Institute for Nanotechnology (NINT, Edmonton) in 2007. He is now an Associate Research Officer and the Energy program coordinator at NINT (now known as NRC-Nanotechnology Research Centre), an adjunct professor of Physics at the University of Alberta, and on the City of Edmonton’s Energy Transition Advisory Committee. Mike’s research and development efforts span a wide range of energy conversion and storage technologies including nanostructured thin films for organic photovoltaics, fuel cell catalysts, and rechargeable and primary batteries, with a focus on automated and high throughput methods. His current work is focused on improving the safety and performance of energy storage in harsh (e.g. high temperature) environments.
