Israel National Research Center for Electrochemical Propulsion:



The current scientific interests of my research group are focused on the electrochemistry of solid-electrolyte lithium and lithium-ion batteries and characterization of innovative materials for advanced energy technologies. Our group has an enduring experience in electroless method, electrodeposition of metals and alloys, and electrophoretic deposition of composite materials.

We develop free form-factor 3D microbatteries, in which all active layers are fabricated exclusively by electrophoretic deposition. The mechanism of AC and DC EPD from different solvents and complex interplay of the EPD parameters, electrochemical properties and interfacial phenomena are under investigation. Thin-film battery electrodes composed of nanosize materials, such as modified Lithium Iron Phosphate, Lithium Titanate and original polymer-in-ceramic electrolytes offer high reversible specific capacity and high pulse-power capability.
