In March 2021, I got the opportunity for an internship interview at the National Battery Research Institute (NBRI). My internship has started in June and finished on August 2021. The goal is to gain a broad range of knowledge about batteries and their applications. The activity I did during my internship was to synthesize NMC111 as cathode material for lithium-ion (Li-ion) batteries. In addition to learning about the synthesis of NMC 111 cathode using the Oxalate Co-precipitation method, I also studied how the material can be used as a cathode material, how lithium-ion batteries work, and also studied the characterization of NMC111 using XRD (X-Ray Diffraction) and SEM (Scanning Electron Microscope) obtained.
Furthermore, I have gained a lot of new knowledge and insights about batteries, their applications, and their needs globally. Not only that, but I also learn about the organization, participate in international activities. Like being an oral presenter on the International Conference on Battery for Renewable Energy and Electric Vehicles 2021 also a participant in the International Battery School 2021. I have gained a lot of new knowledge and relationships that will be very useful in the future. Thanks to the National Battery Research Institute for the best opportunity over the past two months. I also want to thank Prof. Evvy Kartini for all her knowledge where she is an Indonesian battery and nuclear expert.
