Final Thoughts

I have completed my 10 week Cal Energy Corps internship at Lawrence Berkeley Labs. While the internship is over, my work at the labs and on this individual project are not: I will be staying on to continue current efforts during the school year, this time for research credit instead of money.

The End of my Journey at Imprint Energy

Throughout the summer I have been exposed to and learned several techniques to characterize the company’s printed battery technology. During my first week at Imprint, I partnered with another intern and one of the battery scientists to learn about the Scanning Electron Microscope (SEM).

In my previous blog post, I discussed I had been struggling with synthesizing samples that were completely pure. Well, this week I have made some progress, I have finally synthesized some pure samples. It is after synthesizing a total of 26 samples that I finally get 7 pure ones.

Next Steps

Now that I have my summer project figured out and the end is approaching, I have started taking a step back and exploring more about what other people in the lab are doing. Last week, I made a sample to be characterized using atomic force microscopy (AFM).

Project Updates

As my time at the Center for Carbon Removal comes to a close, I find myself more reflective than usual. Maybe it’s the talks about what I want to do in a year that’s scaring me—I don’t think the fact that I’m a senior has quite dawned on me yet.

Por Amor al Arte

The electricity that is produced from coal plants, wind turbines, or solar panels is rarely at the necessary voltage and current that is practical for our uses and electricity needs. Consequently, it is necessary to use a converter, a device that converts electricity from one form to another.

Leveling Up

As my internship resumes, I continue to test battery performance through the yield checking process at Imprint. The data collected from this process will be utilized for cell selection before the shipment of products.

Presenting and reflecting

Last week I had the opportunity to meet with more members of our team. The project involves researchers from many disciplines across five University of California campuses and two national labs.
