Leading a Transformational Shift in the Implementation of Batteries: Dr. Corey T. Love Receives Applied Science and Engineering Arthur S. Flemming Award
June 26, 2023
Corey T. Love, Ph.D., a U.S. Naval Research Laboratory materials research engineer, receives the 2022 Arthur S. Flemming Award in Applied Science and Engineering for his research in rechargeable battery safety and advancing the Department of Defense's (DoD’s) capability for safely employing lithium-ion (Li-on) batteries. By developing a novel optical method for interrogating batteries in-situ, Love gained critical insight into the failure mechanisms of Li-on batteries. By building upon the DoD’s knowledge base, Love developed a simple test for determining the state of health of an individual battery or pack, where the extreme conditions demanded by the military elevate risk of fire and explosion.
