Using Nuclear Magnetic Resonance to Study Glassy Sodium Ionic Conductors – Dr. Ananda Shastri

Sodium ionic conducting glasses have application in sodium batteries. There is great interest and economic potential in developing sodium batteries to store electrical energy generated from solar and wind farms. In this talk, we discuss a sodium-based glass recently developed at Iowa State University, and work done by MSUM physics majors to understand the fundamental properties of this material.
