Dr. Marit Kjærvik
Dr. Marit Kjærvik is a research engineer at Vianode, a manufacturer of synthetic graphite which is used as an anode material in lithium ion batteries. She completed her PhD at Bundesanstalt für Materialforschung und -Prüfung (BAM)/TU Berlin in 2021, before that she studied nanotechnology at NTNU Trondheim. Her interest lies in material characterization and method development, which during her PhD was focused on near-ambient pressure XPS. At Vianode Technology Center, T-XRF is used together with methods as Raman spectroscopy, XRD, SEM and charge/discharge battery testing to characterize and understand graphite and related materials. Vianode is involved in several European and Norwegian research projects within battery material recycling and next generation anode materials.
