Talk Title: New tools for tracking battery function and failure – applications to small, big, and faster charging batteries
Optimisation of battery performance (e.g., rate and lifetime) requires that we understand how battery materials function under operating conditions. This talk will describe the development and application of new approaches to understand both traditional lithium ion chemistry and beyond “Li-ion” technologies – including redox flow batteries.
The Grey group studies the nature of solid state materials by nuclear magnetic resonance (NMR), X-ray and Neutron scattering, electron microscopy and computational calculations. The materials we investigate have applications in supercapacitors, fuel cells, and batteries.
Our current research projects are described here and a full list of publications is available here. We currently have 49 group members including 3 Master students, 22 PhD students (11 students being co-supervised) and 21 Post-Doctoral researchers all listed here. The group is very dynamic and also very international with almost 20 nationalities represented.
