|Graduate School Department /Course /Field||Interdisciplinary Environment/Studies on Material Science/Material Functions and Correlations|
|Research areas||Electrochemistry, Solid state ionics, operando measurement|
|Keywords||Lithium ion battery, Post lithium ion battery, operando measurement|
|Themes||Electric storage devices such as lithium ion secondary battery are expected to be applied to electric vehicle power supplies and natural energy storage and are indispensable for building a society where people and nature coexist . In our laboratory (Prof. Uchimoto lab.), we study the reaction mechanism of the electrochemical device based on electrochemistry and inorganic chemistry combined with synchrotron radiation measurement and develop the novel materials. Our goal is dramatic performance improvement of electric storage devices.|
