The scientific project of the team are based on material science and electrochemistry and are largely focused on applications concerning the storage and conversion of energy: fuel cells (PEMFC, SOFC, PCFC), batteries (lithium-polymer, lithium-ion, lithium-sulfur, sodium-ion, magnesium), high-temperature electrolysers. The research activities of the team are based on common descriptors that concern both electrolytes and electrodes, as well as their interfaces.
The objectives of these studies are:
- Design of new materials and the development of original and optimized microstructures to overcome scientific and technological barriers
- Understanding of the physico-chemical properties, as a function of structural, microstructural, functional, thermodynamic and kinetic parameters.
- In situ and operando sudies of electrochemical systems under controlled atmosphere and temperature by coupled techniques (Raman, DRX, tomography ...) and electrochemistry and the development of Raman imaging.
