Berkeley Electrochemistry Seminar Series

2019 Schedule

Monday Seminars begin promptly at 3:00 PM in LBNL Building 62, Room 203

Monday Discussions begin promptly at 3:00 PM in LBNL Building 70, Room 191

Discussions rotate through three different topics in the following order: DRX, Li Detection in Fast Charging, Si

Note: 70-191 or 62-203 are reserved most Mondays (except for LBNL holidays) from 2:30 PM until 4:00 PM, so that seminar speakers can arrive early to check their presentations, or discussions can begin earlier if need be.
