Should you have equipment already, and know what you are doing, awesome! Bring whatever you have along and join the group.

If you do, make sure there is a red filter over it so our eyes and those belonging to animals nearby are kept safe. We have some red filtered flashlights here for you to borrow just in case. Finally, best of all, this program is FREE (aside from park admission)!! Register by 4 pm on September 24, though registration is NOT required. Meet in the Hunter Barn parking lot.

LRSM Science Café: Jorge Santiago-Aviles
LRSM | The Laboratory for Research on the Structure of Matter – “The Importance of Batteries and Super Capacitors to the Electric Car and to an Efficient Power Grid.” Jorge Santiago University of Pennsylvania Some important aspects of modern technology such as transportation and the efficiency of the power grid are strongly tied to new advances in charge storage technology. Most electric car manufacturers are attempting to obtain a range comparable to internal combustion driven cars, about 500 miles, and all are seeking the right battery / super capacitor for the task. Of course, load leveling, avoiding the cyclical increase in grid load due to seasons, and day / night load fluctuations are a most important concern. We will discuss batteries, energy and power densities and the two types of super capacitors used, electrical double layer and Faradaic.
