Solid state chemistry
We study the production of new promising materials for Li-ion, Na-ion... batteries with the goal to decrease their cost, their environmental impact and increase their performances.Learn more
We study the electrochemical properties of new formulations of conventional or innovative battery electrodes (composite porous electrodes for Li or Na batteries, sintered thick electrodes, electrodes for solid batteries, etc...)Learn more
Thanks to our prototyping equipments we can test our fundamental research discovery at an industry-grade level: the 18650 battery cell format (used in electric vehicles).Learn more
Binders, separators, electrodes, grafting, electrodes... our researchers are using organic chemistry to improve batteries!Learn more
Inspired by photosynthesis, our researches focuses on dye-sensitized solar cells that uses organic materials. Compared to inorganic solar cells they are flexible, simple to produce and transparent.Learn more
To quicken researches, we directly simulate the behaviors of many battery technologies from the material to the system level and from Li-air to redox flow. Our results guide our experimental researchers towards the most promising combinations/materials.Learn more
Synthesis, surfaces, interfaces
We are developing less energy demanding synthesis routes (e.g. biomineralization), we are studying interfaces (e.g. lithium sulfur batteries) and create original architectures (e.g. nano-confining).Learn more
