ARA Group

Dr. Rob Armstrong and his research group focus their research on the design, synthesis, and characterisation of novel materials for lithium-ion and sodium-ion batteries. There is particular emphasis in correlating structure and properties using powder X-ray and neutron diffraction combined with electrochemical studies.
Dr. Rob Armstrong is the project leader on the Faraday Institution sodium-ion battery project NEXGENNA. Details of our groups current research projects are described here and our recent publications are available here.
