Electrochemical storage in GEN3, GEN4 and GEN5 batteries

Energy storage is a major strategic issue at a global scale. Reducing the production of greenhouse gases involves, for example, the use of renewable energies. Due to the intermittent nature of some of these energies (wind, solar, particularly photovoltaic), storage is the only way to achieve a time lag between production and use.

Among the existing means of storage, the most widely spread - all applications taken together - is undoubtedly electrochemical storage using batteries. Materia Nova offers its expertise in the development of battery components and elements, super-capacitors of different generations (GEN3, GEN4 and GEN5) as well as their characterization on the scale from monolayer to half-cell.

Our strengths

  • Deposition of thin films and innovative battery components (electrodes, current collectors, solid electrolytes, catalysts, etc.).
  • Design and engineering of process by plasma, thermal sublimation and wet process with glove box, by ALD.
  • Material characterization platform, in monolayer or half-cell scale (morphology, electrical properties of layers and interfaces by AFM under controlled atmosphere), impedance spectroscopy for understanding interactions and degradation.
