Eye on lithium: Two new ways to measure state of charge

Published November 9, 2022


Engineering.com highlighted UB research led by Shenqiang Ren in an article on studies that may make it easier to measure the charge of batteries.

The UB researchers are using magnets to monitor charge, as the magnetization of the material changes as lithium ions enter and leave it during battery cycling. “We believe this is a new way to provide an accurate, fast, responsive sensing of state of charge,” said Ren, professor of mechanical and aerospace engineering in the School of Engineering and Applied Sciences.
