Design and multi-technical characterization of electro-active interfaces for Li-air batteries

Line of research
Innovative nanostructured materials (carbon, transition metal oxides) that can be used as cathodes in Li-air cells are prepared and tested in batteries by means of various types of electrochemical techniques. The study of the surface reactivity of these interfaces is dealt with by means of photoemission / photoabsorption spectroscopy both of the core (XPS) and of the valence (UPS) levels, with traditional and synchrotron sources. Other techniques used are: FE-SEM, TEM, XRD, Raman spectroscopy. Furthermore, the study also benefits from theoretical calculations.
