Jonas Sottmann is in the final phase of his PhD degree in Electrochemistry and operando synchrotron studies at the University of Oslo, Norway. He received a MSc in Physics from Université Claude Bernard Lyon, France and a BSc in Physics from Georg-August-University of Göttingen, Germany. In 2012 he started on his PhD project with the title “Synchrotron Based Operando Methods for Characterization of Non-Aqueous Electrode Materials”. He studied the structure property relations of various lithium- and sodium-ion battery electrode materials. For that purpose he designed an X-ray transparent cell for combined X-ray diffraction and absorption spectroscopy measurements coupled with electrochemical characterization on the Swiss-Norwegian Beamlines at the European Synchrotron, France.
