Solid state micro-batteries as a miniature energy source

  • Energy storage

The MICROSPINERGY project starts in October 2020, and stands for “Solid state micro-batteries as miniature energy source“. The main goal is to develop high performing thin film all-solid-state-lithium-ion microbatteries to be implemented in sensor nodes for the Internet of Things. This project aims to improve the kinetics of ion transport at the interfaces through fine control of the materials phase and composition at the grain and grain boundaries in order to significantly increase the power density and capacity of the state-of-the-art microbatteries at high charge/discharge rates.

IREC is pleased to host Juan Carlos Gonzalez Rosillo as a Tecniospring Industry researcher. Juan Carlos will work inin the Nanoionics and Fuel Cells group at IREC and he will develop a professional career within the energy field and benefit from top training in technology transfer.

Tecniospring is ACCIÓ’s international talent programme, which boosts technology transfer processes by offering R&D companies and TECNIO centres 2-year employment contracts to host a researcher.

This programme is co-financed by the H2020 Marie Sklodowska-Curie actions of the European Union.
