In a new article appearing in Advanced Energy Materials, we present the development of an operando X-ray spectromicroscopy setup to image electrochemical phase transformations in a single LiMn2O4 crystal. The study revealed the existence of nonequilibrium pathways due to bottlenecks imposed by carrier transport. Young-Sang led the effort and conducted the experiments. Congratulations, Young-Sang!
Abdullah was awarded first place in the category of Physical Sciences at the UIC Student Research Forum. He won for his abstract and poster presentation of his work investigating Mg intercalation reactions in spinel nanocrystal oxides. Woo-hoo for Abdullah!
