One of the most urgent challenges of our time is discovering how to generate the energy and products we need sustainably, without compromising the well-being of future generations by depleting limited resources or accelerating climate change. SLAC pursues this goal on many levels.
Studies of atomic-level processes that drain battery life and efficiency help improve battery performance.
