Nanostructured Materials for Lithium-Ion Batteries

Description: Lithium-ion batteries (LIBs) represent one of the most important and advanced technologies among rechargeable batteries due to their high energy density with high cell voltage suitable for applications in portable electronic devices and electric vehicles. Performance of LIBs strongly depends not only on the electrode materials but also on their microscopic structure. The advantages…

Developing Correlations between Spectroscopic Results and Computed Net Atomic Charges

Description: In this project, quantum chemistry calculations will be performed to compute the net atomic charges of various transition metal solids. Using linear (or higher order polynomial) regression, the computed net atomic charges will be correlated to published core electron binding energies that were measure with x-ray photoelectron spectroscropy (XPS). (These correlations will be useful…
