Solid-State Batteries and Integrated Systems

 Thick Film Coating Work Underway at UDRI

Crafting the future of battery systems

UDRI conducts both fundamental and applied research in battery and battery system technologies. Our groundbreaking work includes thin film coating; processing (small to large format); custom li-ion design, fabrication and testing; and independent evaluation of batteries and battery system technologies for application in wearables, drones, electronics, vehicles, space equipment, and much more.

Our customers include federal and state governmental agencies as well as private industrial firms in the automotive, computing, and battery power sectors. Contact us and see how we can help power your way forward.
