Dana Thompson

University of Leicester

Dana Thompson specialises in mechanical and thermal characterisation of new and spent lithium-ion batteries, including thermogravimetric analysis, differential scanning calorimetry and the scratch test. The next step includes the use of dynamic mechanical analysis to further characterise the mechanical strength of the electrode materials. Characterisation also includes surface morphology techniques such as scanning electron microscopy and energy-dispersive x-rays, all to understand how battery materials are held together and how to effectively separate them in an economic and time-efficient manner.

She is also involved in the development and optimisation of a high-speed electrode delamination process that has been patented by the University of Leicester, and is currently working on recovery processes of nickel, cobalt and manganese from deep eutectic solvents, using techniques such as inductively coupled plasma mass spectrometry and infrared spectroscopy.
