Research Project: Investigating the nanoscale solid-liquid interface for next generation batteries via cryogenic sub-atomic scale electron microscopy
Supervisors: Shelly Conroy (ICL), Baptiste Gault (ICL), Valeria Nicolosi (TCD)
Lukas graduated from the Technical University of Munich with a B.Sc. in Physics and an M.Sc. in Condensed Matter Physics. He is now working with Dr Shelly Conroy at Imperial College to investigate lithium-ion batteries. His work focuses primarily on a combination of STEM and APT at cryogenic temperatures, which will be used to investigate solid-liquid interfaces with the goal of improving the lifetime of next generation batteries.
Being part of the CDT-ACM was an all-round fantastic experience; I not only received great training in a range of advanced characterisation techniques, but I also made strong links with industry and strong bonds with my cohort which have both led to fruitful collaborations.
