Kwang Jin's research was highlighted by ICER and MSU Today. His simulations have resulted in a deepened understanding of the reaction of Silicon-based anode materials with Lithium (Li). His research has been published in
- Vacancies in Si Can Improve the Concentration-Dependent Lithiation Rate: Molecular Dynamics Studies of Lithiation Dynamics of Si Electrodes, Journal of Physical Chemistry C, 2016, 119(43), 24265-24275
- Atomistic Simulation Derived Insight on the Irreversible Structural Changes of Si Electrode during Fast and Slow Delithiation. Nano Letters. 2017;17(7):4330-4338.
These calculations and predictions of charge and discharge in Li-Si systems have been used to suggest guidelines for optimizing battery design in these systems.
He also shared his learning experience of atomistic simulations.
