This PhD will focus on the manufacturing of electrolytes for solid-state batteries within the battery storage team, which is part of the SPECIFIC IKC at Swansea University. Solid state batteries have the potential to be longer-lasting, faster charging, and safer than conventional liquid state batteries, and this is an important area of research to support renewables to reduce greenhouse gas emissions.
The project will include the design of composite powders to create eutectic compositions that enable the fusion of particles at lower temperatures than the standard methods. The successful candidate will have access to a wide range of manufacturing and characterization equipment for a successful project. They will work alongside current PhD students working on the sintering of solid-state electrolytes through a near-infrared heating process to reduce sintering time; this new project has some method alignment that will support PhD training while being separate about project aims.
Candidates must normally hold an undergraduate degree at 2.1 level (or Non-UK equivalent defined by Swansea University) in Engineering or similar relevant science discipline.
