My research project
Solid-state batteries and advanced technology for electrochemical characterisation
This project aims to develop new approaches to the design and processing of interfaces in solid-state batteries (SSBs) to underpin critical advances in device performance. A prototype SSB with novel functional artificial interfaces will be developed, featuring low electron/ion interfacial impedance and prevention of dendrite growth and battery over-(dis)charging. Emerging multifunctional characterisation methodologies and modelling will be established by combining focused ion beam scanning electron microscopy (FIB-SEM), tensile stage testing and cutting-edge electrochemical measurements and simulations.
