Research Fields:

Research activities are is fully focused in electrode materials for both lithium and non lithium (e.g. sodium, nickel) based batteries and it entails the study of both already known phases and innovative compounds. Specific emphasis is placed in tailoring structure and microstructure to maximise electrochemical performance and assessing electrode/electrolyte compatibility.
