Nationality: International Students
Application deadlines: Open until filled.
The aim of the project is to use in-situ experimental techniques, e.g., diffraction or imaging, to characterize the mechanical properties and fracture of all-solid-state batteries. Candidates with relevant experience in micro or macroscale numerical modeling of all-solid-state batteries will also be considered.
The selected applicant will have access to the state-of-the-art facilities for the manufacturing of all-solid-state batteries that are located at the Mechanical & Materials Engineering Department at the University of Western Ontario. They will have access to high resolution SEM/EBSD systems as well as XRD, XPS, and ALD facilities.
