IMX Talk - Tiny insights into big energy-related challenges
Materials used in energy and computing technologies react to electrical stimuli in diverse ways. In this talk, I will discuss our efforts in developing in-situ electron microscopy methodologies and applying them to investigate the mechano-physico-chemical properties of the materials’ response to applied voltages in mixed media. I will detail our holistic approach towards performing meaningful measurements on the active components that are responsible for the performance of systems related to energy harvesting, storage, and conversion.
Bio: Vasiliki Tileli received her PhD in materials science from the State University of New York working on development of statistical, quantitative models of electromagnetic signals in environmental conditions of electron microscopes. She then completed her Marie Curie Individual Fellowship at Imperial College London before moving to the Institute of Materials at EPFL where with her group she studies on a fundamental level the nanoscale properties of functional materials using in situ electron microscopy techniques.
