TEESMAT project organises a series of webinars with the Service Providers presenting the validated characterization techniques and user cases.

The first webinar, titled ‘Photoemission spectroscopy applied to storage energy material’, will be presented by the expert Dr. Anass Benayad, Ingénieur-Chercheur at CEA-LITEN.

The recording of the webinar can be found here

The topic

The X-ray Photoelectron Spectroscopy (XPS) is a powerful analytical tool to study the electronic and chemical structure of materials at the surfaces and interfaces regions. The interest for this spectroscopy is continually growing in diverse fields of fundamental and experimental research. After a brief introduction, we present the contribution of photoelectron spectroscopy to the characterization of the chemical and electronic properties of materials for lithium and post-lithium ion batteries. The protocols developed through XPS and electrochemical characterization paved the way to improve our understanding of the phenomena of solid electrolyte interphase and redox process involved during battery operating. Through case studies, we will emphasize the contribution of XPS to TEESMAT European project

The speaker

Dr. Anass BENAYAD (HDR), is senior expert at the department of nanomaterial and nanotechnology of CEA-LITEN at the Platform of Nanocharacterization (PFNC). He is developing new activities around photoemission spectroscopy in operando mode to study the redox process and electrolyte degradation mechanism in lithium ion batteries. From 2006 to 2013, he was senior researcher at Samsung Advanced Institute of technology (SAIT), where he was in charge of different projects related to material engineering for battery electrodes. Dr. Anass BENAYAD, is author and co-author of more than 100 review papers and 12 patents.

Energy is one of the keystones of prosperity in the European Union. Access to advanced characterisation solutions enables industry to apply a knowledge-based approach, which is essential to accelerate innovation and reduce the cost of technologies.

Battery energy storage plays a major role in the ongoing transition to a decarbonised and clean energy system. The development of a competitive battery value chain in Europe is one of the top priorities of the European Commission.

TEESMAT – the Open Innovation Test Bed for Electrochemical Energy Storage Materials – brings a comprehensive response to the critical bottlenecks faced by EU stakeholders in the field of electrochemical energy storage materials. It leverages EU know-how & expertise from 11 countries and facilitates access to physical facilities, usable data, and industrially relevant services based on novel characterisation solutions.

The main impact of TEESMAT lays in setting up & implementing a financially sustainable Open Innovation Test Bed whose techniques and services address diverse problems faced in the development of clean, safe, high-performance battery solution.
