Paper published: Formation signals
I recently coauthored a paper entitled “Predicting the impact of formation protocols on battery lifetime immediately after manufacturing”, led by Andrew Weng at the University of Michigan. This paper explores prediction and optimization of formation protocols– namely, Andrew identified a readily-measurable, physically-meaningful formation signal that can predict cycle life. I’m excited to see more work in this area—formation is ripe with opportunity!
