Project Description:

Applying materials modelling approaches to improve the performance of existing active anode material products for next generation Lithium-ion batteries, particularly focusing on improvements to energy density.

A KTP (Knowledge Transfer Partnership) is a collaboration between a university and a company, jointly funded by the Company and Innovate UK. KTPs aim to help businesses improve their competitiveness and productivity through the better use of knowledge, technology and skills that reside within the UK Knowledge Base. This KTP is a 24-month project between Loughborough University and Echion Technologies Limited.

The technical goal of the KTP is to improve understanding of active anode materials stability in response to various modifications in order to improve energy density, ultimately providing in silico modelling to support R&D. The materials of focus will be proprietary Mixed Niobium Oxide structures that provide the ability to reversibly fast-charge/discharge  a lithium-ion cell with significant advantages over current in market solutions. This will be delivered initially through enhanced understanding of crystal-level modifications, introduction of defects, potentially expanding the scope to grain boundary considerations.

KTPs aim to help businesses improve their competitiveness and productivity through the better use of knowledge, technology and skills that reside within the UK Knowledge Base. 

The successful Associate will be based within Echion Technologies Ltd. team in Cambridge, but will work closely with academics at Loughborough University, Loughborough campus. The project will involve travel between Cambridge and Loughborough, as well as travel to other sites/clients as appropriate.
