NEW: Solid State (Ceramic) Electrolyte Materials and Interfaces in All-Solid-State Li Batteries

In this presentation, I will discuss development of the state-of-the-art solid state Li ion and Na ion electrolytes for all-solid state batteries with emphasise on ionic conductivity and chemical and electrochemical stabilities.  Also, I will present the experimental aspects to determine the ionic and electronic conductivity in solid electrolytes. Chemical composition-crystal structure-ionic conductivity relationship in various inorganic structures, and recent efforts on understanding interfacial resistance and poor cyclability in all-solid-state Li-ion batteries will be discussed.


NEW: Venkataraman Thangadurai, PhD, Professor, Chemistry, University of Calgary

Dr. Venkataraman Thangadurai is full professor of chemistry at the University of Calgary, Canada. He is a Fellow of the Royal Society of Chemistry, United Kingdom. He received his BSc from Sacred Heart College in Tirupattur, India in 1989 and his MSc from Muthurangam Government Arts College in Vellore, India in 1991. He received his PhD from the Indian Institute of Science, Bangalore, India in 1999 and did his PDF at the University of Kiel, Germany. He received a prestigious PDF fellowship from the Alexander von Humboldt Foundation, Bonn, Germany. Dr. Thangadurai received his Habilitation degree from the University of Kiel in 2004 and started his independent career in Calgary in 2005. He received the prestigious Keith Laidler Award from the Canadian Society of Chemistry in 2016 for his outstanding contributions to physical chemistry. His current research activities include discovery of novel ceramic membranes and mixed ion and electron conductors for all-solid-state-Li batteries, solid oxide fuel cells, solid oxide electrolysis cells, and electrochemical gas sensors.
