The Tapia-Ruiz lab focuses on the Physics and Chemistry of Materials for Energy Storage, primarily in the area of electrochemical energy storage devices such as rechargeable batteries and supercapacitors. We conduct our research in the Department of Chemistry at Lancaster University. We are also affiliated to the Energy Lancaster Research Centre and the Materials Science Institute.
Our research goal is to provide a rational design of electrochemical energy storage materials (electrodes and electrolytes) to improve battery performance. We are interested in a range of battery chemistries, from Li-ion battery to post-lithium battery technologies. We employ a comprehensive range of lab and synchrotron-based techniques to probe materials at different length scales that allow us to gain insight into the structure-property relationships that govern the electrochemical activity in these materials.
