Graphene - An Emerging Electrical Energy Storage Solution

6:00 pm
Toyota USA Automobile Museum, 19600 Van Ness Ave.
Torrance, CA, USA Detailed Info

Graphene - An Emerging Electrical Energy Storage Solution

SAE Southern California Section invites you to come hear about the development of a commercially viable solution to the de-carbonized transportation power needs of the 21st century: graphene. Graphene is a two-dimensional carbon nanostructure material. Electrical energy storage devices made with graphene can be light-weight, compact and inexpensively mass produced. Both Tesla and Boeing are investigating use of such devices.

In 2010, Andre Geim and Konsantin Novoselov jointly won the Nobel Prize in Physics for groundbreaking experiments regarding the two-dimensional material, graphene. Since then, our featured speaker, Dr. Richard Kaner, set out to find a new way to make graphene, the thinnest and strongest material on earth. What he found was a new way to power the world. He has led development of a method to economically mass produce graphene. At the Toyota Museum on Tuesday, January 27, 2015 at 07:00 p.m., Dr. Kaner will talk about his work. An abstract of the presentation is presented in the following Detailed Information section of this event description.

Dr. Richard Kaner is Distinguished Professor of Chemistry and Distinguished Professor of Materials Science and Engineering at the University of California, Los Angeles (UCLA). A brief biography for Dr. Kaner is presented in the following Detailed Information section of this event description.

Event for February 2015

Hyundai Builds for the Future

SAE Southern California Section is pleased to announce its upcoming February 17, 2015 Section meeting to be held in Fountain Valley.

Attendees will visit the new Hyundai U.S. headquarters facility for an overview of its architecture and construction, designed to meet challenging, current environmental and operational needs. This overview will be followed by a walking tour of the facility. At the end of the tour, the new Hyundai Tucson hydrogen fuel cell electric vehicle (FCEV) will be presented.

In 2010, Hyundai Motors America (HMA) committed to create a new headquarters building to accommodate its growing business needs. The existing property location was ideal, so the project began with temporary relocation of 700 employees to buildings in the Orange County area followed by demolition of the original headquarters building. Two years later, an exciting new structure encompassing 500,000 square feet and wrapped in architectural glass emerged from the dust. Hyundai will guide the audience through the trials and tribulations of this massive endeavor. The needs of a modern headquarters facility and the innovative architectural solutions to those needs will be described. Creation of such centers in Southern California is crucial to the continued growth and economic health of the area.

At the conclusion of the presentation, a short walking tour will enable participants to view impressive features of the building.

The tour will lead to a technical service shop where the Tucson FCEV will be viewed and described. The viewing and description will include a top to bottom review of this important new automotive technology. Many different solutions are being introduced to meet increasingly stringent U.S. fuel economy and emissions standards. The Tucson FCEV is but one of four exciting new EV platforms to come from Hyundai in 2015.

Your host will be Hyundai Director of Quality and Engineering, Dr. Mircea Gradu. Dr. Gradu was appointed SAE Fellow in 2011. He served as Vice President of SAE International Automotive Sector from 2010 to 2012. A brief biography for Dr. Gradu may be viewed here.
