Polymer Binder for Silicon-Based Anode

This invention is a smart binder consisting of a reversible polymer network, which has a flexible architecture with restorative capability, to mitigate the large volume changes of silicon anodes upon lithium insertion and extraction. Brad Swope bradswope@psu.edu

Carbon Nanostructure Membranes

This invention provides a way to processes CNT powder into flexible, robust, and binder-free macro-size membranes using a liquid-phase post-synthesis self-assembly (LP-PSSA) technique. Brad Swope bradswope@psu.edu
