PhD projects

Peter Slater’s research is in the area of materials chemistry, with the main focus being on the development of new materials for energy applications. Recent research has included the investigation of novel electrolytes for use in solid oxide fuel cells and Li/Na ion batteries. His research group also has interests in the synthesis and characterisation of mixed metal oxide fluorides prepared by low-temperature routes for a range of applications. Experimental techniques employed include X-ray and neutron diffraction, conductivity measurements, thermogravimetric analysis, Raman and NMR spectroscopy. Professor Slater is interested in supervising doctoral research in the following areas: Synthesis and characterisation of new materials for Li/Na ion batteries Synthesis and characterisation of new materials for use as electrolytes/electrodes in solid oxide fuel cells Synthesis and characterisation of novel anion/cation excess systems as new ionic conductors/magnetics materials General Solid State Chemistry: synthesis and characterisation of inorganic solids
