İTÜ’s Academics will Develop Materials for Next Generation Lithium-Ion Batteries
İTÜ Chemical-Metallurgical Engineering Faculty, Metallurgical and Materials Engineering Department faculty member Prof. Dr. Hüseyin Kızıl and İTÜ Faculty of Textile Technologies and Design, Department of Textile Engineering faculty member Assoc. Prof. Dr. Meltem Yanılmaz will develop materials for next generation lithium-ion batteries.
News: İTÜ Media and Communication Office
The project of our faculty members titled “Composite Solid Electrolyte Development for All Solid State Lithium BATTerieS (CSE-LBATTS)” was accepted within the framework of the Horizon 2020 Program Marie Sklodowska-Curie Actions (MSCA) Individual Fellowship 2020 call.
In the project of 36 months duration that will be implemented under the coordination of İTÜ and with the collaboration of North Carolina State University (NCSU), Department of Textile Engineering faculty member Assoc. Prof. Dr. Meltem Yanılmaz will take part as “Researcher” and Metallurgical and Materials Engineering Department faculty member Prof. Dr. Hüseyin Kızıl will take part as “Supervisor”.
In the project with a total budget of 260 thousand Euros, nano-composite solid electrolytes (CSE) that have high ionic conductivity and interface properties will be developed in order to increase the performance and safety of next generation lithium-ion batteries that will be used in electrical vehicles and portable electronic devices.
Prof. Dr. Hüseyin Kızıl
Prof. Dr. Hüseyin Kızıl completed his undergraduate education at İTÜ Mechanical Engineering Department in 1992. He received his Master's degree (1995) in Mechanical Engineering at the Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute and his Ph.D. degree (2002) in microtechnology at the Department of Materials Science and Engineering. Currently a faculty member at İTÜ Metallurgical and Materials Engineering Department, Prof. Dr. Hüseyin Kızıl conducts research in the fields of lithium and sodium-ion batteries, energy materials, surface treatments, micro and nano-systems, and biosensors. He has taken and is still taking part as an executive, researcher and consultant in many research projects supported by different institutions. He has national and international registered patents, numerous articles published in internationally indexed journals and national refereed journals, and many national and international congresses, conferences, and symposiums.
