COLLEGE PARK -- UMD researchers officially start a partnership with SK Innovation (SKI) Co., one of South Korea’s leading energy companies, to create a lab housed on the College Park campus to study electrolyte interfaces for the next generation Li-ion battery research. The Mini Satellite Lab (MSL), located on the College Park campus, is funded by SKI for the first year, with evaluation and renewal to follow.


Prof. Sang Bok Lee (Director of Maryland NanoCenter) of the Department of Chemistry and Biochemistry in the College of Mathematical and Natural Sciences and Prof. Gary Rubloff (Director of NEES Energy Frontier Research Center) of the Department of Materials Science and Engineering in the School of Engineering lead this program together.
