Ian David Johnson

Postdoctoral Appointee


Dr. Ian Johnson is a Materials Chemist with interests in rechargeable battery technologies, including Li-ion batteries and next-generation Mg batteries. His position at Argonne National Laboratory is investigating the diffusion of Mg using electrochemical methods within promising cathode candidates for Mg batteries.

He has extensive experience of the synthesis and structural characterization of battery materials. The former includes low-temperature, solution-based synthesis of metastable, disordered phases displaying novel electrochemistry, and the latter includes synchrotron X-ray diffraction and Rietveld analysis.
