With all the focus on Li-ion batteries one might not realize there are other battery technologies under development. In this presentation I will talk about work done in the last 2 years looking at sodium ion batteries. Specific emphasis will be placed on identifying reaction mechanisms, reaction products and understanding the differences between the much large Na-ion compared to Li-ions. I will show under certain circumstances the Na atoms diffuse faster than the smaller Li.

 

Cookies and coffee will be available at 9:30.
