Energy Conversion, Harvesting and Storage
This research line investigates new materials for a range of energy storage and harvesting devices from all-solid-state batteries to fuel cells and safe high energy supercapacitors, piezo- magnetoelectric devices, as well as materials to minimize the consumption of high energy-demanding processes. The participant groups offer expertise in the design and development of performant materials constituting these devices (electrodes, electrolytes, light absorbers, catalysts, materials with hierarchical porosity) and advanced fundamental evaluation and (nano)characterization (electrochemical, spectroscopies, in situ and in operando neutron and synchrotron techniques). The activity also includes clean fuel production, through thermal and photochemical water splitting.
