Carlsbergfondet - Distinguished lektor-stipendier/Semper Ardens - Amorphous electrode materials for rechargeable batteries

Project: Research

Project Details


This project aims to understand the fundamental mechanism behind how materials with no long-range
order, i.e. amorphous materials function as electrodes in rechargeable Li- and Na-ion
batteries. This is achieved by determination of the fundamental electrochemical and structural
properties hereunder elucidating the ion-storage mechanism in amorphous materials for the
charge-discharge processes. This is accomplished through state-of-the-art operando X-ray
scattering experiments. Understanding the correlation between the electrochemistry and the ion-storage
mechanism is of vital importance as it determines the electrical potential, reversibility
and stability of the battery system.
