Gabriel Badillo Crane

Research Interests

My research currently focuses on adapting rapid spray plasma processing (RSPP) techniques developed for the production of solar cells to the rapid production of high quality ultra-thin LLZO electrolyte. LLZO is a promising nonflammable ceramic material for battery applications that shows low reactivity with lithium metal, opening the path to a lithium metal battery with high Lithium conductivity and low electronic conductivity.
