Spectroscopic analysis of electrolytes, electrode materials and electrochemical devices

Tonia M. Di Palma received her degree in Physics from University of Naples “Federico II” in 1992 and PhD in Material Science in 1998 from University of Rome “La Sapienza”. Since 2001 she is researcher at National Research Council of Italy. She gained an extensive professional expertise in many fields such as laser spectroscopy, laser ablation, thin film deposition, materials characterization, supersonic molecular beams, time of flight mass spectrometry. In the last ten years she acquired additional expertise in electrochemistry, by carrying out researches on gel polymer electrolytes and aluminum-air batteries.

She is currently Principal Investigator of researches on metal-air batteries and new electrochemical energy conversion systems at the STEMS Institute in Naples. Her main interests are in the development of environmentally friendly materials for post-lithium batteries and new bio-inspired batteries. She is author of  more than 70 articles in international scientific journals.
