Serena presents at the Royal Institution: The Battery – inside out

The first of a series of events at the Royal Institution sponsored by the Faraday Institution, Serena presented a brief history of batteries and how they work at The Battery- Inside Out on March 12. This was followed by presentations on what materials go into the latest batteries, the geopolitical issues around sourcing materials from… Continue reading Serena presents at the Royal Institution: The Battery – inside out

Happy International Women’s day!

In celebration of International Women's day, Serena joined colleagues at the University of Manchester for a day of celebration and discussion. Serena presented some recent research her group have been part of that has been enabled by close collaboration with diverse teams of researchers: a Leverhulme funded project between Serena, Rachel O'Reilly at the University… Continue reading Happy International Women’s day!

NASICON LiM2(PO4)3 electrolyte (M = Zr) and electrode (M = Ti) materials for all solid-state Li-ion batteries with high total conductivity and low interfacial resistance

Congratulations to Hany on his latest paper on NASICON-type LiM2(PO4)3 electrolyte (M = Zr) and electrode (M = Ti) materials, published in the Journal of Materials Chemistry A. This work, in collaboration with researchers at Imperial College, demonstrates a new sol-gel based synthetic approach to battery materials, with higher total conductivities for LiZr2(PO4)3 than previously… Continue reading NASICON LiM2(PO4)3 electrolyte (M = Zr) and electrode (M = Ti) materials for all solid-state Li-ion batteries with high total conductivity and low interfacial resistance
