  • Reference Number: Recruitment no 33/2022
  • PhD Student – scholarship position available in the Institute of Physical Chemistry PAS within NCN OPUS, no. 2021/41/B/ST5/04450, " Towards novel generation of anodes based on halide perovskites for li-ion batteries " (project leaders: Prof. dr hab. Inż. Władysław Wieczorek (CH PW), Dr inż. Michał Leszczyński (IPC PAS).

    The main objective of the project is to utilise tailor-made perovskite-type materials as major negative electrode components as well as artificial solid electrolyte interface (SEI) protecting layers for a new generation of Li-ion batteries. All materials will be prepared using, innovative mechanochemical procedure by grinding of solid state precursors. Physicochemical properties of novel “mechanoperovskites” will be examined by a variety of techniques. Afterwards, the developed materials will be subjected to extensive electrochemical investigation in order to evaluate their applicability in Li0ion batteries. The final stage of the research involves preparation of new energy storage devices based on the results achieved in the course of the project.
