Research Area/Interests:

Professor Amatucci is the director of the Energy Storage Research Group (ESRG), a technically diverse applied research group of faculty, research staff, graduate, and undergraduate students whose charter is the research, development and advancement of new energy storage device chemistries enabled by advancements in materials science. The group focuses on a wide range of nonaqueous and solid state chemistries, the majority of which incorporating ESRG developed nanocomposites which enable significant new abilities to deliver and store large amounts of power and energy per weight of device. The group focuses not only on the development of new materials but especially on the in depth understanding of bulk and interfacial operational and failure mechanisms which occur on the nanoscale during the operation of these ionically active materials. The ESRG maintains over 3000 ft. of off campus laboratories dedicated to this mission. Capabilities range from fabrication and broad characterization of macro and nanoelectrode materials to the development of rechargeable energy storage devices of flat laminar design incorporating these materials to evaluate electrochemical performance.
