Sept. 26 – LiRichFCC and Helmholtz Institute Ulm have organized the first international workshop on Li-rich disordered materials within the frame work of the “Electrochemistry 2018” at Ulm University. Over 60 experts from Europe, Japan, and the US discuss recent progress and perspectives of the field.
Sept. 25 – The consortium is meeting for its fourth General Assembly at the Helmholtz Institute Ulm. Recent progress is discussed, further activities are planned, and future perspectives are analyzed by the 16 participants from KIT, CEA (France), KI (Slovenia), DTU (Denmark) and Uppsala University (Sweden).
Jul. 23 - Kemijski inštitut performed XAS measurements at DESY 's beamline P65 »Applied X-ray Absorption Spectroscopy« in Hamburg. During twelve shifts, we measured different samples synthesised within the LiRichFCC project at Kemijski inštitut and Helmholtz Institute Ulm.
Jul. 20 - The 2nd International Symposium on Magnesium Batteries, which is from September 27-28 2018,
addresses the research community in this rapidly growing field.
It is the aim of the symposium to present and discuss the recent state-of-the art and the progress in the field.
Jun. 25, 2018 - Technical University of Denmark has been performing operando synchrotron XRPD measurements at ALBA recently. Now the results are in! Digging deeper to reach higher grounds...
May 25, 2018 - We are happy to announce that LiRichFCC is now on Twitter! Follow us @LiRichFCC and receive periodic updates from our project, information about upcoming events, and other selected news targeted at the electrochemical energy storage community!
April 10, 2018 - The consortium met at Uppsala today for its third General Assembly. Besides the scientific progress, issues regarding IPR and innovation are of increasing importance. FETOPEN strives to exploit!
Mar. 26, 2018 - The LiRichFCC-team from Uppsala University spent two weeks at the synchrotron facility BESSY. Pristine and cycled samples of both coated and uncoated materials were investigated by photoelectron spectroscopy. This will give decisive information on how and why LiRichFCC materials age – and how to better stabilize them in the battery cell.
Nov. 22, 2017 - LiRichFCC held its second General Assembly in Brussels yesterday, followed by our official Review at the Research Executive Agency today. We are happy to say that we received positive assessments by the reviewers and will now focus on the work ahead.
Apr. 11, 2017 - We are thankful to CEA Grenoble for hosting our first General Assembly! The project is off to a swift start, and results look promising. To strengthen communication within the project, IT infrastructure and regular teleconferences have now been implemented.
Mar. 7, 2018 - NIC group has been awarded by 12 shifts of beam time at the beam line for X-ray absorption spectroscopy at synchrotron Elettra. We have examined structural changes of three different Fe based LiRichFCC materials. We observed effect of fluorine content in Li2FeOyFx samples.
Oct. 25, 2016 - The project kick-off meeting has been held in Ulm. 13 participants from all five partner institutions discussed the current state of the art, recent progress in their research groups, and outlined the details of the work plan for the coming months.
Oct. 1, 2016 - As of today, the LiRichFCC project has officially started. Recruitment of PhD students and postdocts has been successfull, and the consortium looks forward to three exciting years of research in the field of lithium-rich oxyfluorides with FCC crystal structure.
