报告题目:Computational materials modelling and design for post-lithium and organic batteries: practical design strategies and methodological issues

报 告 人:Sergei Manzhos

     National University of Singapore

报告时间:2019年3月15日(星期五)下午2:00

报告地点:前卫南区唐敖庆楼C区603报告厅

 

报告摘要:

I will give an overview of my research program in computational materials modeling and design. I will focus for most of the talk on ab initio modelling and design of materials for next generation metal ion batteries, specifically active electrode materials for post-lithium and organic batteries. I will present key results of comparative studies of intercalation of ions differing by ion size (e.g. Li vs Na vs K) and valence (e.g. Li vs Mg vs Al) in different phases (including amorphous) of several prospective active electrode materials including carbon, Si, Sn, TiO2 and vanadium oxides. I will show how ab initio modelling can help develop efficient strategies to improve voltages or enable electrochemical activity for post-lithium storage. I will highlight our recent advances in computational design of organic electrodes, including MOF-like materials, vdW crystals, and polymers. I will highlight conceptual and methodology issues one has to deal with when modelling battery materials such as the use of oxidation states for rationalization of the mechanism, treatment of vdW interactions or deficiencies of functionals or construction of amorphous phases.

I will also briefly point to my efforts in methodology to address key bottlenecks in materials modeling: developments in orbital-free DFT to enable more realistic, large-scale ab initio modeling, and the rectangular collocation method that makes it easier to compute anhamonic spectra, specifically at interfaces, addressing lack of accurate computational support for this workhorse materials characterization technology.

报告人简介:

Sergei Manzhos is Assistant Professor at the Department of Mechanical Engineering, National University of Singapore. He works on computational materials modelling and design, specifically for applications in advanced electrochemical batteries, focusing on post-lithium and organic batteries, and advanced solar cells, focusing in charge transport materials for perovskite solar cells. Dr. Manzhos is also active in method development in the areas of quantum dynamics (computational vibrational spectroscopy and potential energy surfaces) and large-scale ab initio methods (Orbital-free DFT). He hold PhD in chemistry from Queen’s University, Canada (2005) and prior to NUS worked as NSERC Postdoctoral Fellow at the University of Montreal, Canada (2005-2008) and Project Assistant Professor at the University of Tokyo, Japan (2008-2012).
