Yet Ming Chiang
Massachusetts Institute of Technology
Talk Presentation: Materials, Systems, and Manufacturing Challenges for Electrochemical Storage at Transportation and Grid Scales
Yet-Ming Chiang received an SB degree in materials science and engineering in 1980 and an ScD degree. A co-founder of A123 Systems, he is also the Kyocera Professor of Ceramics in the Materials Science and Engineering Department at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology, where he focuses on the design, synthesis, and characterization of advanced inorganic materials and related devices. Current topics of research interest include new cathode and anode materials for lithium ion batteries, phase transformations in electroactive materials, electrochemical device design, electrochemical-to-mechanical energy conversion, self-assembling colloids, and the stability and defect chemical properties of interfaces in inorganic materials. In 1987, Chiang co-founded American Superconductor.
Chiang has published widely in materials science and engineering, and served on numerous government panels and editorial boards of journals in his field.
