Traditional lithium batteries contain flammable and explosive liquid electrolytes, which are prone to thermal runaway. At the same time, liquid electrolytes are not compatible with lithium metal anode with high energy density, which limits the further improvement of battery energy density.
Hong Kong Quantum AI Lab, also known as The Centre of Machine Learning for Energy Materials and Devices, was established through a collaboration between HKU and Caltech. It is funded by InnoHK, the world-class ten-billion I&T initiative of the Hong Kong Special Administrative Region Government. The centre is dedicated to making breakthroughs in the fundamental research area of AI + quantum chemistry and applying the latest scientific discoveries and technological advancements to facilitate the transformation and development of microelectronics, new energy, materials industries through digital technology.
Our areas of technological research and development include the AI + quantum chemistry simulation platform for discovering new materials, Li-ion battery design and simulation tools, battery health and life diagnosis tools, solid-state batteries, new catalysts, OLED emitter materials, robotic technologies, and more.
