New paper published on greigeite / graphene electrodes in Journal of Materials Chemistry A

New paper published in the Journal of Materials Chemistry A on the use of metal sulfide / graphene electrodes for use in ionic liquid supercapacitors. This work was done in collaboration with colleagues from the Czech Republic (among others: Palacky University and University of Pardubice) and spearheaded by Aristides Bakandritsos and his Ph.D. student Smita V. Talande. We are grateful to be featured on the back cover.

New paper published on ion transport kinetics in carbon nanopores in Nature Communications

New paper published in Nature Communications on the ion transport in carbon nanopores. The charge storage kinetics (and discharge process) of ionic liquid supercapacitors can significantly be enhanced when employing non-conventional charge/discharge profiles – and: slower is faster! This work was done in collaboration with colleagues from Stuttgart (both MPI for Intelligent Systems and University of Stuttgart), Slavko Kondrat (Institute of Physical Chemistry, Poland), and Layla Mehdi (University of Liverpool, UK).

Prestigious awards for Presser Group alumni

Congratulations to our alumni Dr. Simon Fleischmann (PhD 2018) for winning the 2020 YESS Award to carry out research to investigate the transition from Faradaic to non-Faradaic energy storage (RS2E French Research Network on Electrochemical Energy Storage) and Dr. Pattarachai Srimuk (PhD 2019) for winning the 2020 UMSICHT Award (Fraunhofer UMSICHT) and the Leibniz Dissertation Award (Leibniz Association) for work on desalination batteries.

Welcome Dr. habil. David Aradilla!

Welcome to our team! Dr. habil. David Aradilla has obtained his PhD from the Polytechnic University of Catalonia and the Barcelona Research Center in Multiscale Science and Engineering in 2013. Among others, he worked at the CEA Grenoble (2013-2018) and the Georg August Universität Göttingen (2018-2020). Among others, he is an expert in electrochemistry, electrode materials, and energy storage technologies. He will enrich our team’s expertise and contribute towards the development of new generations of electrochemical energy storage devices.
