A variety of electrochemical energy storage devices will be characterized. Due to the variety of potential electrochemical energy storage devices, multiple students may work on this project. For each device that will be studied, a literature search will have to be done to see what characteristics have already been published with regards to size, weight, energy density, power density, internal resistance, etc. Once the published parameters have been collected for each device, the devices will be experimentally validated and compared with the published data. Ultimately the goal of the research will be to integrate the data from each device into Ragone charts.
