BIG-MAP App Store

BIG-MAP has developed a platform to share and promote its state-of-the-art tools and methods: the BIG-MAP App Store. This online portal serves as the primary registry of all the apps used and developed in the projects funded by BIG-MAP, offering a one stop solution to explore powerful apps for battery research.

The App Store hosts more than 25 apps, covering a broad range of topics such as automatic battery assembly with robots, automatic frameworks for various types of simulations, GUIs for running different electronic structure codes like Quantum ESPRESSO, VASP etc., modular tools for electrochemical analysis, machine learning tools, and battery management systems.

Update on WP4 activities


Fraunhofer ISC in Würzburg hosted a joint workshop together with the IT University of Copenhagen (ITU) and the University of Tartu (UTARTU). During the visit, a diverse programme enabled guests to experience the existing robot-based automation platform first-hand. The progresses and achievement of specific goals were addressed in detail in an interactive and fruitful discussions. Subsystems of the plant were successfully tested, ITU team adapted their analysis algorithms, carried out extensive data collection and worked out efficient cleaning cycles for the in-house liquid/liquid extraction device managing a smooth integration of the API for the dosing equipment, which was a significant milestone. In addition, both acquired and self-built devices were successfully put into operation. UTARTU team members were extremely happy to actually sit at the devices and machines for which he has been programming the back-end for so long!

The careful preparation beforehand promoted a seamless effort integration.  An unforgettable moment was the last cooperation day, when all colleagues worked dedicatedly on the plant!

A solution-mediated pathway for the growth of the solid electrolyte interphase in lithium-ion batteries

In this article, Wolfgang Wenzel and co-workers use a mesoscale simulation approach to comprehensively characterize the growth and composition of the SEI based on a chemistry-specific reaction network. They find that the organic SEI forms and grows in a solution-mediated pathway by the aggregation of SEI precursors far away from the surface via a nucleation process, which has consequences for long-term battery operation.
