The main topic for the PhD work will be related to describing and understanding stability and reaction mechanisms of cathode materials for Li-ion batteries, particularly at demanding or extreme conditions where undesired reactions and pathways may take place. These investigations will require the use of operando techniques, primarily X-ray based methods both in the home lab and at synchrotron facilites like ESRF, Grenoble. Modification of the materials and electrodes by coatings, using Atomic Layer Deposition, is foreseen with focus on changes in stability and mechanisms. A main partner in these investigations is the Defense Research Establishment (FFI) at Kjeller, and the successful candidate must fulfil the specific requirements for accessing the FFI laboratories.
