The Bao Group secures a grant from the Precourt Institute for Polymer Battery Research

 

 

The Precourt Institute has awarded a grant to a collaborative effort between the Bao Group and Professor Yi Cui's group in Materials Science at Stanford.  The grant will be used to continue to develop nanostructured conductive polymers for high-energy, low-cost, stretchable batteries, and to develop high-performance all-polymer batteries.
