About the Project

Jointly funded by some industrial partners, this project aims to develop a commercially viable solution to design and manufacture solid-state battery cells with complex geometries that have never been possible before, using a novel LCD-based vat-polymerisation 3D printing system. This project offers a chance to take part in a project that will have real world impact in electric vehicles, electronics, and energy sector, working in a leading research group at Loughborough University, as well as the Additive Manufacturing Centre of Excellence in Derby, UK. 

Rechargeable lithium-metal batteries will formally entre automotive qualification process in 2022 and is expected to revolutionise the electrical vehicle (EV) market, as well as high-end digital products. 3D printing such battery cells offers endless geometric complexity to the manufacturers and hence the maximum energy density batteries. Such batteries can ultimately used in functional parts and components of the cars (for example in the dashboard), and reduce the overall size/weight of the vehicles and enhance their energy efficiency. Find out more

Funding Notes

This project is funded in partnership by the Wolfson School of Mechanical, Electrical and Manufacturing Engineering and industrial partners of the project. If awarded, the studentship is for 3 years and provides a tax-free stipend of £15,609 per annum for the duration of the studentship plus tuition fees at the UK rate. While we welcome applications from international students, please be advised that it will only be possible to fund the tuition fees at the international rate and no stipend will be available. Successful candidates will be notified end of March 2022.
