Power to X Electrochemical energy storage Lithium ion batteries , solid state batteries , high energy density batteries , metal-air batteries. We invite applications from enthusiastic individuals with experience in relevant aspects of Computer Science or Electrical Engineering. You must be able to demonstrate. You will join us on an indefinite contract however, the role remains contingent on external funding which, at this time is due to come to an end on 15 January with a. Emphasis will be put on using x-ray absorption spectroscopy, transmission electron microscopy TEM. The project includes a variety of possible research directions to be carried out in cooperation with Goncalo dos Reis.

Lithium-ion batteries have enabled the development of portable electronics and electric vehicles, due to the great energy density they are able to store for a reduced weight and volume. The tremendous success of these systems and the development of new applications renewable energy storage, connected objects, internet of things, The use of transition metals in current batteries is associated to problems of uncontrolled costs, recycling, and environmental acceptability. For this reason, scientific research in this field focuses now on organic Li-ion batteries, for which electroactive materials can be obtained from biomass so-called biosourced" materials. The proposed thesis topic is at the crossroads of two new emerging themes : 1 organic batteries, 2 all solid-state batteries ASSB. ASSB use solid electrolytes, which offer a great advantage in terms of safety. Moreover, solid electrolytes allow overcoming the solubility problem of organic materials in usual solvents of liquid electrolytes.
Phd-Thesis Lithium Battery
The battery technology is approaching a larger share portion of the energy storage demands nowadays. These sustainable electrochemical-based methods are gradually replacing the traditional fossil resource to power the world with its carry-on capability and eco-friendly nature. Many applications such as, military power supplies, civil transportation, and stationary storage need higher energy density of the rechargeable battery as the development of society.
The research work focuses equally on the scientific fundamentals, essential for the development of new technologies, and on the analysis of ageing and safety relevant aspects of current industrial batteries. The investigated systems include both lithium-ion and post-lithium-ion batteries. For motivated students we can always offer a possibility to perform their Semester and Master project on the one of the topics listed above under Projects. Sigita Trabesinger. Secondary navigation.
