Brief description This project aims to develop anode materials for high energy, long service life sodium-ion batteries. The natural abundance of sodium makes sodium-ion batteries the most promising low cost system for large-scale electrical energy storage. However, they are limited by the low rate of diffusion through their anodes. This project will investigate the electrochemical sodiation/desodiation anisotropy on different crystalline facets of anode materials to identify more rapid diffusion pathways and develop a better, high-rate. Success is expected to improve battery performance and enable energy distributors to lower the cost of renewable electrical energy, encouraging its adoption.
