Scientist working in battery lab

BATT Fabrication Laboratory

The BATT Fab Lab (Batteries for Advanced Transportation Technologies Fabrication Laboratory) conducts battery cell analysis and testing of the performance of new materials in experimental batteries. It has glove boxes and equipment for manufacturing small experimental test cells. All battery assembly work takes place inside of glove boxes to keep out moisture. The lab also has a hydraulic Klein cell machine, an automated device that combines the battery's electrodes and generates sealed battery cells reproducibly.
