Post Doc in Mechanics of Batteries - Cambridge

Lithium ion batteries are prone to degradation by a range of mechanisms including dendritic formation and swell-induced fatigue and micro-cracking. The topology of the battery plays a role over a number of length scales, from macro scale geometry of battery to the microstructural scale of the mixing of the negative electrode in the electrolyte. Topology has a major effect both on performance and on the failure mechanisms.
