Location: HQ- San Jose, CA
Employment Type: Full-Time/Part-time
Team: Physical Characterization
Come join us on our mission as we revolutionize energy storage to enable a sustainable future.
We are located in San Jose, California with a new energy storage technology that will allow electric vehicles to outperform internal combustion cars. We have enabled a step-change in performance with a different chemistry and cell architecture that also benefits safety.
Do you want to make a contribution to this critical part of the future energy economy? As a member of our analytical team, you will develop state-of-the-art material characterization methods to convert physical signal to electrical signal and versa vice!
Setup a mechanical test method for thin films with large deflections. Apply both classical and nonlinear bending model to perform stress analysis on films to characterize their mechanical properties.
Develop a scalable and reliable crack detection method, both in-operandoand post mortem.
Determine interface adhesion for multilayered structures
