Dr. Prieto heads up the Technology Team and also manages an extensive Intellectual Patent portfolio.
Through their collective research and efforts, the technology team has developed or are developing:
a) the direct electrodeposition of novel intermetallic anode materials onto high surface area conductive materials,
b) revolutionary aqueous based techniques to conformally electrodeposit nanoscale, solid polymer electrolytes onto the Cu2Sb anode material surface,
c) cathode nanoparticle synthetic routes and aqueous-based slurry chemistries, and
d) optimization of procedures used for large format battery performance testing.
