Illuminating Performance Characteristics Of Battery Materials Using Synchrotron Techniques: Advanced NMCs, Sodium-Ion Batteries And Solid Garnet Type Electrolytes
Santa Clara, CA, USA
Great America Ballroom J Track 7
16:30 - 16:55
This talk will cover the use of synchrotron radiation techniques to characterize bulk and surface properties of battery materials relevant to device performance. Examples will be drawn from the author's own work on NMC cathodes for lithium-ion batteries, sodium-ion battery anode materials, and solid garnet-type electrolytes based on Li7La3Zr2O12 (LLZO).
Marca M. Doeff received her B.A. in Chemistry in 1978 from Swarthmore College (Swarthmore PA), and her Ph.D. in Inorganic Chemistry in 1983 from Brown University (Providence RI). She is a staff scientist at Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory and principal investigator working in battery programs funded by the U. S. Department of Energy. Her research interests concern materials for energy storage applications and she has authored more than 100 papers on this topic. She is a fellow of the Royal Society of Chemistry, an associate editor for the journal RSC Advances, and secretary of the Battery Division of the Electrochemical Society.
Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory is a member of the national laboratory system supported by the U.S. Department of Energy through its Office of Science. It is managed by the University of California (UC) and is charged with conducting unclassified research across a wide range of scientific disciplines. Berkeley Lab was founded in 1931 by Ernest Orlando Lawrence, a UC Berkeley physicist who won the 1939 Nobel Prize in physics for his invention of the cyclotron, a circular particle accelerator that opened the door to high-energy physics.
