2019-07-15. Sebastian Risse Helmholtz-Zentrum Berlin Research at Helmholtz-Zentrum Berlin für Materialien und Energie (HZB) covers the range from basic materials science to providing solutions to the global energy challenge, contributing to the Re-search Fields Matter, Information and Energy. The institute for soft matter and functional meterials at HZB has experience in the performance and analysis of operando experiments of batteries. The focus lays on electrochemical impedance spectroscopy (EIS), Raman spectroscopy, UV/vis spectroscopy, small angle scattering techniques (with photons or neutrons) and X-ray imaging. Most of these techniques are combined in a multi-modal operando setup to gain system information from different view angles simultaneously. Special emphasis is laid on the performance of operando EIS with a low system pertubation.
2019-06-27. Majid Kazemian Diamond Light Source The fundamental understanding on battery materials, in situ and operando methods, specifically synchrotron‐based ones are gaining momentum and are starting to be implemented on a broad basis. Thin film liquid electrolyte or polymer based hybride batteries are very promising devices for energy storage at high energy density due to their intrinsic safety, environmental friendliness and low cost, but still there are key issues to be solved to get to the industrial scale. The DIAMOND I08 facility offers to study such systems using operando scanning soft X-ray microscope (SXM) having highest spatial and energy resolutions below 50 nm and 0.1 eV, respectively. This is providing a platform for in-depth space-time dependent investigations of the chemistry of crystallites evolving during potential cycling. These operando measurements have been enabled by the construction of a novel wet cell and study of battery anodes in presence of solid conductive polymer electrolyte.
2019-06-26. Markys Cain Electrosciences Ltd Electrosciences have expertise in dielectric impedance spectroscopy of multifunctional materials exploring effects of interface and interphase on functional performance of materials and devices including ferroelectrics, piezoelectrics and energy storage (solid state) dielectrics. The methods developed would be of practical use for battery evaluation, as a characterisation tool but also as a long term lifetime testing method. A combination of developments in (low frequency) methods alongside in-operando XRay synchrotron diffraction with partners, XMaS, ULiv, would provide links between macroscopic electrochemical/functional response to structural and chemical information. This would require development of complex-phase materials and systems models to validate the EIS data. We request that g10 consider this contribution to the proposed JRP.
Electrosciences also sits as UK expert on UK BSI Mirror committee RPI/013 Advanced technical ceramics committee.
2019-06-26. Paul Thompson XMaS - ULiv The University of Liverpool (ULiv), along with the University of Warwick own and manage a materials science synchrotron radiation beamline at the European Synchrotron Radiation Facility. This forms part of the larger European Photon and Neutron Science Campus located in Grenoble France. The beamline has developed in-oparando measurement capabilities for measuring both X-ray diffraction and spectroscopy whilst simultaneously measuring the electrical characteristics of energy storage devices, such as batteries (e.g. charge / discharge cycles).
ULIv have been active participants on both the Nanostrain (IND-54) and Advent (16-ENG-06) EMPIR funded projects. We propose that integrating electrochemical impedance spectroscopy into an x-ray beamline could provide complementary structural and electrochemical interface functional performance, with partners Electrosciences Ltd.
