Dr. Xing specializes in materials science and engineering, focusing on next generation electrochemical energy storage and conversion technologies including Li-ion batteries, Li-sulfur batteries and solid-state batteries. He is versed in a variety of classical materials science characterization techniques which include X-ray photoelectron spectroscopy (XPS), Fourier transform infrared spectroscopy (FTIR), scanning electron microscopy (SEM), focused ion beam (FIB), Raman spectroscopy, Ultraviolet-visible spectroscopy (UV-Vis), X-ray powder diffraction (XRD), thermogravimetric analysis spectroscopy (TGA). Additionally, Dr. Xing gained extensive hands-on experience on electrochemical characterizations including galvanostatic cycling with potential limitation (GCPL), cyclic voltammetry (CV), electrochemical impedance spectroscopy (EIS). His deep knowledge of electrochemical, mechanical and microstructural characterization of materials allows him to evaluate/determine failure mechanism in materials and devices.

Prior to joining Exponent, Dr. Xing worked as a Graduate Research Assistant at University of California San Diego, where he received a Ph.D. in Materials Science and Engineering. His research focused on designing, fabricating and evaluating all-solid-state battery devices through the help of chemical, electrochemical and mechanical characterizations. In addition, Dr. Xing has extensive experience with the sulfur-contained cathode performance optimization.
