Congratulations to Finden intern Abigail Eddie who received a Highly Commended from The Faraday Institution for her #FUSE2023 poster.
She completed an internship under the supervision of our Senior Scientist Dr Steve Price, Dr Beth Johnston and Dr Innes McClelland from the University of Sheffield.
Abigail’s FutureCat project focused on chemical imaging of battery cathode materials. She took part in adapting scripts in Python to automate the analysis of the X-Ray Diffraction-Computed Tomography (XRD-CT) data of an LiNiO2 cathode. The programs written proved to reliably and efficiently extract crystallographic information and physical parameters from the sample. Reducing the time spent on data processing will allow faster research and development into new battery materials.
