Project overview

Hi-C is a project under the FP7 program, ENERGY.2013.7.3.3: Understanding interfaces in rechargeable batteries and super-capacitors through in situ methods. Project period:  Sep. 1. 2013 – 28/2 2017

The objective of the project is to develop methodologies for determining in detail the role of interface boundaries and interface layers on transport properties and reactivity in lithium batteries, and to use the knowledge gained to improve performance.

The methods used will be advanced multi-technique in situ characterization combined with computational methods. The findings will be used e.g. in design of artificial Solid Electrolyte Interface (SEI) layers, in optimization of morphology and particle-coating in cathode materials and in improving intra particle ionic mobility across buried interfaces.
