The Ångström Advanced Battery Centre (ÅABC) at Uppsala University is one of the leading research group working on development of sodium-ion batteries. There are currently 5 PhD students and 4 postdoctoral researchers in the “sodium-ion battery” team whom study on understanding of interfacial reactions, materials synthesis, electrolyte development, and addressing ageing in sodium-ion batteries.
Uppsala University (UU) is an international research university founded in 1477 and ranked among the 100 best universities in the world in all different ranking systems. UU has 42,000 students, 7,000 employees and a turnover of SEK 7 billion. The Department of Chemistry – Ångström Laboratory has 52 senior researchers, 21 postdocs and about 84 PhD students. The Ångström Lab. hosts state-of-the art infrastructure, tools and expertise, including fully operational clean room facilities, TEM, SEM, MS, operando XRD, Raman spectrometers, FTIR, NMR, thermal analysis, furnace room facility for synthesis, and thin film equipment ALD and CVD.

We are participating in SIMBA project to take the next steps towards commercialization of sodium batteries. In this respect, we provide different characterization methods to obtain a better understanding of interfacial reactions in this project. We think this project has the potential to address some of the main challenges for sodium-ion batteries.
