Description of PhD project
I am working on synthesis and Characterization of electrode materials (LTO, Li-rich layered cathode, Na layered cahode) for Li/Na ion batteries. I mainly use supercritical flow (pulse flow) method to prepare nano particles. My project also including in situ XRD(SXRD) study on the formation of electrode material by both solid state reaction and hydrothermal process, and in situ XRD study of electrode material structure evolusion during battery operation.
Yanbin Shen has received her bachelor degree on Electrochemistry from Harbin Institute of Technology in China at 2006. Then she worked at BAK, a lithium ion battery company in Shenzhen, China as a R&D engineer for four years.
In 2010, she came to Aarhus University and is currently working at Prof. Bo B. Iversen's group as a PhD student. She has established the AU battery lab and focus on design and application of nanosized materials for lithium ion battery.
