  Paving the Way for Safer, Smaller Batteries and Fuel Cells
  Research led by Karen I. Winey, TowerBrook Foundation Faculty Fellow, professor and Chair in Materials Science and Engineering, and Edward B. Trigg, then a doctoral student in her lab, introduce a new and versatile kind of solid polymer electrolyte (SPE) that has twice the proton conductivity of the current state-of-the-art material. The researchersí new design could be adapted to work for the lithium-ion or sodium-ion batteries found in consumer electronics.
