In this position, we propose to go beyond the Edisonian methods and combine a more in-depth approach using in situ techniques and advanced electrochemistry with the development of an electrical/electrochemical model to interpret those results with the aim ultimately to quantify the different phenomena occurring during (de)intercalation of industrial-grade Li(NixMnyCoz)O2 materials.
The recruited personn will have the overall resposability of the project. He has to be autonomus on characterization techniques and on modeling. He will be at the interface between the lab and the industrial.
Ability to work both as a team and independently
Ability to work in a fast-paced environment and to report about her/his advances
Experience of advanced electrochemical methods (GITT, PITT, EIS, CV)
Experience in modeling of electrochemical phenomena
Experience in characterization (XRD, Raman, IR, EIS, Granulo, Porosimetry, TGA, SEM…)
The host unit will be the Laboratory of Reactivity and Chemistry of Solids (LRCS) installed in the "Energy HUB" of the Electrochemical Energy Storage Network (RS2E). It is a globally recognized laboratory in the field of electrochemical energy storage with more than 100 researchers. LRCS activities are dedicated to different themes, such as solid state chemistry and electrochemistry, characterizations, prototyping and modeling. The laboratory studies a wide range of battery technologies (Li-ion, Sodium-ion, Lithium-Sulfur, Metal-Air, redox circulation, etc.) in close connection with RS2E, the European network ALISTORE ERI and numerous industrial players. .
The work will be carried out in partnership with the company Umicore which has been present in the battery materials market since the 2000s and which is today the world leader in cathode materials.
Constraints and risks
X-Ray Diffraction will be wisely used
Cells will be assembled in Glove-Boxes.
