Stanley Whittingham, Professor of Chemistry and Materials Science & Engineering, and Director, Institute for Materials Research, SUNY at Binghamton. The discussion centered around batteries of all kinds, but encompassed varied topics as well, such as the development and history of electrochemistry and some common misconceptions about batteries and electricity. The show can be heard online here.

Lopate's talk show airs on WNYC from noon to 2 pm every weekday, as well as on XM Satellite Radio Channel 133 every weekday from 4 pm to 6 pm (EST). Segments of the show are available as podcasts found on iTunes and on the station's website. "Please Explain" airs every Friday at noon, and is a weekly feature on The Leonard Lopate Show.

Dr. Meyers's research group conducts research on batteries, fuel cells, and other electrochemical energy systems, developing mathematical models and performing experiments to identify new materials, or to elucidate mechanisms that affect the performance and robustness of these devices.
