WELCOME :  A link to download our presentation at IMLB 2016 in Chicago

on OPERANDO X-Ray and Neutron diffraction. PDF


This www site presents both my teaching and research activities in the field of inorganic ion conductors and electrodes for energy storage devices, in particular Li and Na batteries. I hope to share with you the beauty of the Crystal Chemistry of such materials.


I work (since Sept. 2000) as a Full Professor in Chemistry at the Université de Picardie Jules Verne (UPJV), in Amiens, France, a beautiful and peaceful city i learned to love. My research activities are conducted within the Laboratoire de Réactivité et de Chimie des Solides (LRCS) which hosts 70 people focused on Materials for Energy Storage and Conversion. The LRCS is a CNRS - affiliated Resarch Unit, participates actively to the European ALISTORE E.R.I and to the French RS2E Network.


The UPJV also acts as the Coordinating Institution of the ERASMUS MUNDUS Master Course "Materials for Energy Storage and Conversion" (MESC).







Recently, thanks to the high intensity of the Synchrotron ALBA (Barcelona)​ we spotted an intermediate ordered form of Li0.5Mn2O4 through operando X-Ray diffraction. Acta Cryst., 2015
