Welcome to the Electrochemistry Laboratory (LEC)
The Electrochemistry Laboratory (LEC), established 1988, is part of the Energy and Environment Research Division (ENE) at the Paul Scherrer Institute. The laboratory comprises 6 interacting research groups that deal with almost all aspects of electrochemical energy storage and conversion. PSI’s Electrochemistry Laboratory is Switzerland’s largest Center for Electrochemical Research.
Operando X-ray photoelectron spectroscopy, to monitor the chemical and electronic interface evolution in all-solid-state batteries
Degradation of the solid-electrolyte interface occurring during cycling is currently one of the most challenging issues for the development of all-solid-state batteries. Here we designed a unique electrochemical custom made cell for operando X-ray photoelectron spectroscopy (XPS) capable of maintaining high mechanical pressure with reliable electrochemistry and able to monitor in real-time the surface (electro-)chemical reactivity at the interfaces between the different composite.
