Research

The CATMAT project is comprised of three interlinked work packages

WP1: UNDERSTANDING HIGH ENERGY DENSITY CATHODES

(Led by Peter Bruce)

  • Determine failure processes: O-redox, Ni-rich, disorderd rocksalts
  • New knowledge to inform discovery of novel cathodes
  • Taken toward scale up & cell testing
  • Overcome problems: 1st cycle V loss, V fade, O loss, interfacial instability

WP2: MATERIALS DISCOVERY & SYNTHESIS

(Led by Peter Slater)

  • Explore new O-redox, O-F, S-redox
  • Discover cathodes by exploring new structual motifs
  • Interface stabilisation: core-shell approach
  • Integrated approach: experimental-computational synergy

WP3: COATINGS, ADDITIVES, SCALE-UP & CELL DESIGN

(Led by Emma Kendrick)

  • Connect basic sci to manufacturing using new cathodes (WP1&2)
  • Optimise with coating & morphology control & full cell demo
  • Materials manufacturing for batch scale synthesis
