Master thesis: Aluminum dual-ion batteries

Do you have an interest in Batteries and Graphene? Do you want to contribute to a sustainable energy storage solution?

We are looking for a Master of Science student for a Master Thesis project at RISE.

Master Thesis project work at RISE in Stockholm Welcome to RISE, the Department Materials and Surface Design in Stockholm. We can offer you an exciting R&D environment for your Master Thesis.

During the project work, you will be part of our team in Stockholm located at the Royal Institute of Technology (KTH) campus.

Background Green energy produced from hydropower, solar cells, and wind power industries is required to be stored. Currently, lithium-ion batteries, are used for this purpose. Although widely used, lithium ion-based energy storage system is resource-intensive and uses critical metals that are not easily available in Europe and this very expensive and not sustainable in the long run. Therefore, the currently available batteries, including lithium-ion batteries, are not suitable for grid-scale energy storage. To meet the needs of future energy storage in a large scale, a low-cost and more environmentally friendly energy storage system must be developed. Dual ion battery is one of such energy storage systems that is potentially suited for the purpose.

Project The goal of this thesis project is to contribute to a greener energy storage system by (1) developing a more sustainable battery, as well as (2) strengthening the industry's ability to prepare itself for a more sustainable future.

The Master thesis project will include tasks:

  • Development of a more sustainable aluminum dual-ion battery for grid-scale energy storage applications by replacing critical metallic materials in battery industries with more sustainable carbon-based materials and aluminum.
  • Characterization and testing of the developed materials, electrodes, and cells.
  • Student profile You have an interest in sustainability, innovation, electrification, batteries, material science, and engineering. You should be an M.Sc. student in the field of nanotechnology, material science, chemistry, physics, electrochemistry, environment, electronics engineering, industrial engineering, and energy technologies or a related subject.

    You need to be enthusiastic, curious, and keen to develop your skills, enjoy working in an international team, and with good communication skills. Excellent language skills in spoken and written (scientific and technical) English. Swedish language skills are a strong plus.

    Scope The thesis project can start from January 2023 (flexible arrangement possible). The expected duration of the thesis work is 20 weeks.

    Location: RISE, Stockholm. Option to have part of the work can be performed remotely.

    Credits: 30 ECTS (academic credits) in agreement with your thesis advisor at your university.

    Number of students per group: 1-2

    Welcome with your application! Please apply directly through this portal. If you need more information, please contact Anwar Ahniyaz ( ). Candidates are encouraged to send their application as soon as possible but at the latest by 2022-12-20.
