Analysis of Electrochemical Impedance Spectroscopy (EIS) data for electrochemical systems often consists of defining an Equivalent Circuit Model (ECM) using expert knowledge and then optimizing the model parameters to deconvolute various resistance, capacitive, inductive, or diffusion responses. For small data sets, this procedure can be conducted...
In the search for more sustainable energy storage devices, biomass-derived materials have been widely researched as carbon source for electrode applications. Here we present the processing of high molecular lignin, an abundant carbon rich biopolymer and byproduct of the pulp and paper industry, into freestanding nonwoven carbon fiber (CNFs) electro...
Electrospinning is a technique used to fabricate fibrillar materials for different applications. Understanding this process allows companies to reduce efforts and to have better control of the variables present in this phenomenon. A mathematical model is described in this article for Newtonian, Giesekus, FENE-P, and Oldroyd-B approaches. This was d...
Lithium-ion battery degradation estimation using fast and noninvasive techniques is a crucial issue in the circular economy framework of this technology. Currently, most of the approaches used to establish the battery-state (i.e., State of Charge (SoC), State of Health (SoH)) require time-consuming processes. In the present preliminary study, an ul...
Humanity is facing a gloomy scenario due to global warming, which is increasing at unprecedented rates. Energy generation with renewable sources and electric mobility (EM) are considered two of the main strategies to cut down emissions of greenhouse gasses. These paradigm shifts will only be possible with efficient energy storage systems such as Li...
Electrostatic spray pyrolysis has been used to produce high voltage LiNi0.5Mn1.5O4 thin film electrodes for 3D Li-ion microbattery application. The influence of the synthesis parameters on the structure, texture and electrochemical behavior of the produced electrode has been investigated using X-ray diffraction, scanning and transmission electron m...
A direct approach for the synthesis and coating of advanced nanocomposite negative electrodes via a single-step process at low temperature is presented. Metal-oxide/PVdF nanocomposites are obtained in one step by electrospray pyrolysis of precursor solutions containing dissolved metal salts together with polyvinylidene fluoride (PVdF) as binder. In...
Nanostructured composite electrodes based on iron and copper oxides for applications in Li-ion batteries are produced by Electrostatic spray pyrolysis (ESP). The electrodes are directly formed by electrospraying precursor solutions containing either iron or copper salts dissolved in N-methylpyrrolidone (NMP) together with polyvinylidene fluoride (P...
In this work a novel method is used to fabricate uniform thin layer electrodes based on nano-silicon composite material. The manufacture process, based on a combination of Laser assisted Chemical Vapor Pyrolysis and Electro-Spray Deposition, allows the forming of highly uniform and highly porous surface electrodes. By controlling the particle synth...
In this work novel approaches to fabricate silicon-based electrodes are shown. Starting from silicon nano-particles it is possible to create nano-structured porous thin films. Both the synthesis of the Si nano-particles and the electrode assembly are performed via aerosol routes. This guarantees a very good control on the particle size and the part...
Using computer algebra software we obtain the basic diffusion rate corresponding to the concentration of surface adatoms inside a circular nanopore. The method used is the Laplace Transform Technique and calculus of residues. This method can be extended to other more complex problems if considered annihilation at defect and adatom creation by ion i...
