This book is your graduate level entrance into battery, fuel cell and solar cell research at synchrotron x-ray sources. Materials scientists find numerous examples for the combination of electrochemical experiments with simple and with highly complex x-ray scattering and spectroscopy methods. Physicists and chemists can link applied electrochemistry with fundamental concepts of condensed matter physics, physical chemistry and surface science.

"After finishing the book a first conclusion I get is that it has given me access to a vast amount of information [..] providing insight in a large variety of energy-related materials with many different experimental techniques. The richness in possibilities is therefore huge." Gastón García, Crystallography Reviews (2017) /P>
"This is a good book that is indispensable for students and researchers [...]" Hideto Imai in: Journal of Synchrotron Radiation 25 (2018), 1609-1610
