work in Prof. Sossina Haile's research group centerss on ionic conduction
in solids, with the twin objectives of understanding the mechanisms
that govern ion transport, and applying such an understanding to the
development of new solid electrolytes and advanced solid-state electrochemical
devices. The most direct application of her work is in solid-state fuel cells, technologies which are critical for a sustainable energy future.
Haile group is loosely associated with the thermoelectric materials effort led by faculty associate G. Jeffrey Snyder.
