Potential energy surfaces represent the total energy of a system of nuclei and electrons as a function of the nuclear configuration. These surfaces (and property surfaces, such as the dipole moment) are key tools for quasiclassical trajectory calculations, molecular spectroscopy, quantum scattering and other applications in molecular science.

Li-ion transport and local structural changes are vital in current and future batteries, however hard to monitor on a microscopic level under operando conditions. Here I will present our recent progress in the use of operando Neutron Depth Profiling, operando m-beam diffraction and Nuclear Magnetic Resonance investigating Li-ion and solid state batteries.

Gerard van Rooij (group leader Nonequilibrium Fuel Conversion) will give an outreach talk on energy storage and conversion during TU/e's Sustainable Energy SETalks on 28 March 2018.

There have been major developments recently in the understanding of the very edge of tokamak plasmas. New experimental analyses, coupled with new heuristic theoretical understanding, has led to a simple and accurate model for the width of the narrow region of plasma that is scraped off the plasma edge and ultimately strikes material surfaces, the Scrape Off Layer or SOL. Furthermore, the model predicts instability at the edge, due to the strong pressure gradient in the SOL, at just the point in edge density where good plasma confinement is experimentally found to be lost.
