ISEN research project “Probing battery electrochemistry in situ at atomic scale”

January, 2016

Jinsong Wu, Vinayak Dravid, Mark Hersam and Dr. Jeffrey Elam (research scientist at Argonne National Lab) have been granted a research project “Probing battery electrochemistry in situ at atomic scale” by Institute for Sustainability and Energy at Northwestern (ISEN). Dr. Qianqian Li, postdoctoral researcher at EPIC, is partially supported by the project.   Under the support, we will have opportunity to develop novel instruments and technique for in operando observation of electrochemical reactions at high resolution by in-situ TEM. We plan to apply atomic scale observation of charging and discharging for several important electrodes of high capacity and rechargeable batteries.
