Research on rechargeable ion batteries is in continuous rapid expansion driven by huge international investments in both scientific and industrial sectors. Significant research efforts are focused worldwide on the study and development of durable, reliable, cheap, ecological sustainable materials and energy devices. In this context, advanced analytical imaging, spectroscopic and X-ray diffraction techniques such as those offered by synchrotron facilities, can provide morphological, chemical and structural information not easily accessible by traditional laboratory methods.
“The battery challenge at synchrotrons” workshop is aimed at gathering scientists working on battery innovation and development and highlighting the most recent achievements obtained with synchrotron-based approaches, also providing future perspectives at soft x-ray FELs beamlines. This dissemination initiative is of strategic importance for Elettra-Sincrotrone Trieste as it is intended to both attract new users involved in ion battery research and reinvigorate the impact of our research infrastructure in the development of ion batteries.

This workshop will be hosted by Elettra-ST in the Adriatico Guesthouse, on November 29th and 30th, 2023.

No attendance fee is requested to the participants.
