Novel Materials, Architectures and Operando Methods in Electrical Energy Storage

This presentation will deal with novel materials, architectures and the development of operando methods for the study and characterization of electrical energy storage materials. The presentation will begin with a brief overview of the methods employed.  Particular emphasis will be placed on the use of X-ray diffraction (XRD) and X-ray absorption spectroscopy (XAS), transmission electron microscopy (TEM) under active potential control and differential electrochemical mass spectrometry (DEMS) and operando TEM. The utility of these methods will be illustrated by selected. The use of organic-based materials for battery and supercap applications will also be discussed.

The presentation will conclude with an assessment of future directions.
