Dr. Stephen Campbell, Principal Scientist at Nano One Materials, today announced a collaboration with Simon Fraser University that will advance the understanding of the physical and chemical characteristics of lithium ion batteries as they charge and discharge.

This project will help us characterize how battery materials change over time,” said Dr. Campbell. “We will be in a better position to explain performance improvements in our cathode formulations and this will help us optimize process parameters and develop new materials.

The two-year collaboration with SFU will be supervised by Associate Professor Dr. Byron Gates and Dr. Campbell, with financial support from the Mitacs Elevate Postdoctoral Fellowship Program.

My team will be developing new analytical techniques to characterize lithium ion battery materials while they charge and discharge,” said Dr. Gates. “This will advance the field, not only in the battery space, but also for related technologies to improve our understanding of these materials and their performance. Nano One will be closely involved and will be able to utilize this knowledge and the newly developed techniques to guide their own developments of new materials for lithium ion batteries.

Dr. Gates has been serving as a key advisor to Nano One,” explained Dr. Campbell, “and I am proud to be taking our working relationship to a new level with this project.

About Nano One

Nano One Materials Corp (“Nano One” or “the Company”) is developing patented technology for the low-cost production of high performance battery materials used in electric vehicles, energy storage and consumer electronics. The processing technology addresses fundamental supply chain constraints by enabling wider raw materials specifications for use in lithium ion batteries. The process can be configured for a range of different nanostructured materials and has the flexibility to shift with emerging and future battery market trends and a diverse range of other growth opportunities. The novel three-stage process uses equipment common to industry and Nano One is building a pilot plant to demonstrate high volume production. Nano One’s mission is to establish its patented technology as a leading platform for the global production of a new generation of nanostructured composite materials.

About Dr. Gates
Dr. Byron Gates is an associate professor in the Department of Chemistry, head of the Centre for Soft Materials, and was a Tier II Canada Research Chair for ten years. He currently serves to advise Nano One Materials Corp., a Canadian technology company working on scalable processes for high performance battery materials on new chemical processes. His own research efforts include developing new pathways to prepare nanomaterials, as well as performing analytical studies on the surface chemistries of nanostructured materials. Gates has also demonstrated new platforms to evaluate the efficiency of materials for clean energy technologies that are being used to guide further improvements in the design of these materials. He was a postdoctoral fellow at Harvard University with professor George Whitesides and received his M.Sc. and Ph.D. from the University of Washington with professor Younan Xia.
