Our recent efforts in PartCat, led by A/Prof Dawei Wang, on using defective nanoscale WO3 for LIBs has just been published in Advanced Energy Materials! By filling oxygen defects with N, the capacity to store Li notably increases. Very cool! Using EXAFS, we were able to tease out the local structural differences between pristine and defective WO3 that enable Li storage. Congrats to first author Cuiyang on his first PhD-based publication. You’ve set a high bar!
We would also like to that the staff at 12-BM of the APS for the excellent support during our XAS experiments. Thanks!!
