Characterization of organic-metal batteries with X-ray Raman scattering performed at DESY, Hamburg
We performed X-ray Raman measurements (XRS) on organic-metal batteries at P01 beamline of PETRA III synchrotron radiation source at DESY, Hamburg in September 2021 within project I-20210340 EC »High energy aluminium-organic batteries studied by X-ray Raman spectroscopy«. We measured O K-edge XRS spectra on organic batteries based on poly anthraquinonyl sulphide – PAQS combined with Al metallic ions. XRS using hard X-ray incident beam provided analysis of bulk cathode material and also operando measurements on working battery, where we could observe the changes in oxygen bonding during battery discharge. Experiment was performed in collaboration with colleagues from the Laboratory for Modern Battery Systems at the National Institute of Chemistry.
Electron Screening @ IJS
Electron screening is very important in nuclear astrophysics. A review of our research on electron screening effect and our newest experimental results will be presented by our colleague Dr Aleksandra Cvetinović.
Results of the public tender for co-financing of ARRS research projects for 2021
On 24 September 2021, the Slovenian Research Agency (ARRS) published the results of this year's public tender for research projects. The staff of the F2 section were extremely successful.
European Metrology Network for Radiation Protection gets the green light
Ensuring radiation protection together in Europe – EURAMET (European Association of National Metrology Institutes) started a new European Metrology Network. We are a part of the network, the Memorandum of Understanding was signed last week.
