Exponent presented the results of its independent third-party investigation of the Samsung Note 7 recall at a press conference at Samsung in Seoul. Our work was conducted on behalf of Samsung to determine the root cause for lithium-ion cell failures in the Note 7 device. Dr. Kevin White, a principal scientist in Exponent's Polymer Science & Materials Chemistry practice, presented our findings. Dr. Shukri Souri, director of Exponent's Electrical Engineering & Computer Science practice, helped answer questions after the press conference ended.
Information on the press conference and a copy of Exponent's presentation can be found on Samsung's website. The video of the press conference can be found below.
