PhD Title: Solid State Electrolytes for Batteries

During the past decade, solid-state batteries (SSB) have attracted scientific interest due to their anticipated superiority from the perspective of energy density and safety when compared to conventional lithium-ion batteries. Celina’s PhD proposes work towards a novel method to deposit and sinter solid-state electrolytes with improved overall properties by investigating the manufacturing process.

This study will also focus on sintering of NASICON (Sodium (Na) Super Ionic CONductor). To this end, sodium ion batteries could achieve high safety and energy density and therefore are considered as a potential candidate to replace lithium-ion batteries.
