Electrochemical Strain Dynamics in Nanocatalysts Monitored by Operando Synchrotron X-ray Diffraction
Shedding brilliant synchrotron light on nanocatalyst materials during operation in electrochemical devices unveil their structure-property relationship. description du visuel.
Raphaël Chattot’s work is dedicated to the design, preparation and characterization of functional nanomaterials for the electrochemical conversion and storage of energy. In particular, He focuses in transposing the performance and stability of nanocatalysts developed in model laboratory conditions to the practical fuel cell and electrolyzer devices. His approach is built notably on the use of synchrotron techniques operando.
