Positions available in our group!

Come and join our research group at Glasgow Chemistry! Two postdoctoral positions are currently available in my research group to work on battery materials through two SUPERGEN grand challenge projects: one on the development of microwave synthetic routes and structural characterisation of battery materials and the other on new organic electrodes for Li- and Na-ion… Continue reading Positions available in our group!

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
