Our aim is the development of advance metal anodes for the batteries of the future.


Releasing functional metal anodes: Lithium (Li) and other metals such as Sodium (Na), Magnesium (Mg) for the development of post-Li-ion technologies such as sodium-ion batteries (Na-ion batteries), magnesium-ion batteries (Mg-ion batteries), sodium-sulfur batteries (Li-S batteries), lithium-air batteries (Li-air batteries)  and  solid-state batteries, focusing on three main strategies:

  • Modification of alkali metal surfaces and interfaces.
  • Developing artificial Solid Electrolyte Interphase (SEI).
  • Growth of alkali metal thin films by PVD (such as thermal evaporation, sputtering) and CVD.

The goals of the research line are to develop anode materials allowing to:

  • Boost the battery capacity.
  • Render metal anode full safe system by removing dendrite growth.
  • Improve batteries durability: cyclability, life spam, and stability.
  • Produce cost-efficient batteries.
