UCSB researchers reveal that a common impurity degrades battery electrodes.
llustration depicting hydrogen-induced degradation of a sodium-ion battery: (1) When hydrogen is present (circled in black), (2) an Mn atom (purple) can move from the MnO2 layer to the Na layer (yellow); (3) Mn can then move within the Na layer, and will be lost. Illustration by Hartwin Peelaers.

An image from the simulation of a large, spherical cluster of cells responding to an electric pulse. Cells in the aggregate are color-coded by their transmembrane potential (hotter colors on cells imply higher transmembrane potential). The equatorial slice is to illustrate some of the computational techniques used for solving bioelectric interactions on the cell membranes.
Professor Frederic Gibou's lab creates the first large-scale simulation of cells’ response to electrical pulses.
