Ocean Discovery Institute

Professor Ong gave a talk on careers in STEM to 5th grade students from Hamilton Elementary at the Ocean Discovery Institute last Fri (Oct 14, 2016). He also worked with on building remotely operated vehicles. Check out the pictures below!

Li10SnP2S12 experimentally verified

A recent publication in JACS, “Li10SnP2S12: An Affordable Lithium Superionic Conductor” (http://pubs.acs.org/doi/abs/10.1021/ja407393y ) provides experimental validation of one of Prof Ong’s computational predictions. In an paper published in Energy and Environmental Science earlier this year, Prof Ong and colleagues predicted using advanced ab initio molecular dynamics simulations that Sn substitution for Ge in the Li10GeP2S12 superionic conductor would result in a material with similar ionic conductivity at a substantially reduced cost.
