Ion migration pathways in electrode materials

A short introduction to battery research seen from a crystallographers’ point of view. A large part of my PhD has involved participation in the invention and testing of a novel visualization technique: The Procrystal Analysis. Application to a wide range of electrode materials for Li-ion battery applications prove the methods’ validity in describing the migration …

Degradation Studies on LiFePO4 Cathodes by FIB/SEM Tomography

Focused Ion Beam (FIB)/Scanning Electron Microscopy (SEM) is considered to be one of the most powerful techniques for three-dimensional morphological analysis and chemical composition characterization. It is widely used to study materials for energy applications and, coupled with computational analysis, it enables detailed 3D reconstructions of the examined sample.  LiFePO4 (LFP) is an interesting cathode …

Support for Danish EV tax exemption

In a new survey conducted by the Danish Society of Engineers, 74% of the Danes support continued tax exemption for electrical vehicles beyond 2015. Also, the sale of electrical vehicles increased to more than 1500 in 2014 (almost 1% of all cars sold in 2014).   Read the full article (in Danish) at IDA.dk.
