Chuang Yu


I’m a PhD student (2013-2017) focusing on solid state Li- and Na-ion electrolytes and their applications in all-solid-state batteries. My recent research includes two parts. One is synthesis Li- and Na-ion conductors and investigate their ionic diffusion phenomenon. The other part is the application of solid electrolytes in all-solid-state batteries and study the interfacial part. Powder X-ray and neutron diffractions in combination of refinements and TEM measurement are chosen to study the structure of solid electrolyte. AC impedance, solid-state NMR and MD simulations are applied to study the Li- and Na-ion dynamics of solid electrolyte. Cyclic voltammetry (CV) and Electrochemical Impedance Spectroscopy (EIS) are applied to investigate the electrochemical kinetics of solid state Li- and Na-batteries.
