Polymer synthesis and characterizations of solid-state electrolyte for lithium-ion batteries

Département de l'Electricité et de l'Hydrogène pour les Transports (LITEN)

Laboratoire Matériaux



Stockage électrochimique d'énergie dont les batteries pour la transition énergétique (.pdf)

LITEN is one of the highest European research centers in the field of the new energy technologies. LITEN research activities focus on the renewable energy, on the energy efficiency and on the high performance materials for energy. Our department is focused on the development of lithium-ion batteries to enhance both simultaneously their energy density and their safety. Standard liquid electrolytes used in actual battery are intended to be replaced by solid-state electrolyte to reach these objectives. The selected candidate will work on patented and exclusive organic materials designed to fulfill all the requirements of solid-state electrolytes. He/she will be in charge of synthesizing new organic and polymer structures. Some steps of the synthesis/process will be carried out under anhydrous conditions (i.e. Glove box or anhydrous room). The post-doc will be in charge of characterizing these materials in terms of structure (NMR, FT-IR, HPLC-MS..), nanostructure (SAXS, POM, XRD, GI-SAXS), physical properties (DSC , TGA, rheology) and electrochemical properties (EIS, cycling, electrochemical stability window measurements). He/she will be in contact with various experts in batteries and large-scale instruments. The project is part of an ANR project with several partners, dedicated to the fundamental understanding of ion diffusion/transport in soft electrolytes by means of multi-scale multi-techniques methodology. Strong and good communication skills (reporting) are expected.
