Energy storage and power capabilities of electrochemical energy storage systems such as lithium rechargeable batteries and supercapacitor cells is strongly influenced by the structure of the interface between the electrode and electrolyte where the electrochemical reaction occurs. In order to alter the field of battery research and conceive an entirely new battery development plan, game-changing ideas that continuously create innovative new development paths are necessary, and implementing advanced laser manufacturing technologies is very attractive in this regard. My research plans are shaped by the emerging trend towards advanced manufacturing processes that focus on the question of how best to synthesize functional composite materials or to construct rationally designed device architectures. Intensive investigation of laser-based material and device processing methodologies is dedicated to pursue radical improvement of the performance of electrochemical systems so that affordable energy can be given to our society.
