Batteries: materials principles and characterization methods

Batteries materials principles and characterization methods, Edited by Chen Liao, IOP Publishing, 2021, Hardback ISBN: 9780750326803, Ebook ISBN: 9780750326827

Scientific Achievement

This research and reference text provides an introduction to battery fundamentals, exploring some of the state-of-the-art characterization methods currently employed by the energy storage community.

Significance and Impact

With a focus on Li-ion batteries, the book contextualized against a discussion of newer, disruptive technologies such as Li-air and Mg-ion batteries, the text is ideal for researchers and students interested in the materials and characterization methods for batteries, including those without a background in electro- or solid-state chemistry.

Research Details

  • The first chapter is focused on the basic understanding and techniques
  • The rest of the chapters each focus on one advanced characterization technique for batteries, including electrochemical characterization and modeling, synchrotron-based battery imaging, FTIR and Raman, Online Electrochemical Mass Spectroscopy, Electron Microscopy, NMR, X-ray photoelectron spectroscopy, Scanning Electrochemical Microscopy, and Small Angle X-ray Scattering.
