“A New Class of Aqueous Insertion Reaction Electrodes With Rapid Kinetics and Long Cycle Life”
Prof. Huggins joined the faculty at Stanford after receiving his doctorate at MIT in 1954. He played a seminal role in the initiation of the field of Solid State Ionics, and has been centrally involved in the development of the materials science basis of lithium-ion and other advanced battery systems for energy storage. He recently returned to Stanford after spending 16 years in Germany, where he was Chief Scientist of the Center for Solar Energy and Hydrogen Research in Ulm, and is an Honorary Professor in two universities.
He has over 380 research publications, and is the author of two recent books, Advanced Batteries: Materials Science Aspects published in December, 2008, and Energy Storage, published in August, 2010.
