ERC Consolidator Grant 2024: Understanding the Processes at the Electrode/Electrolyte Interface in Batteries

Type of Funding: EU Integrated Research Projects, Others

Accounts of exploding cell phone batteries and electric cars on fire are a constant reminder of the dangers of batteries with high energy densities. However, when it comes to developing longer-lasting and safer batteries, we don’t yet have detailed knowledge of the electrochemical processes inside the battery, or more precisely at the interface between the electrode and the electrolyte. Professor Tong Li hopes to close this gap. She is Professor for Atomic-Scale Characterizationat Ruhr University Bochum, Germany, and has been awarded a Consolidator Grant by the European Research Council. Using a highly specific method, namely atomic probe tomography, the Bochum-based researcher is able to better understand electrochemical processes with atomic resolution.
