Energy Meets Materials

The goal is to be able to offer the complete cycle from understanding the basic phenomena, processes and materials involved in these technologies to their use in real-world energy applications, taking full advantage of our complementary expertise in materials chemistry, electrochemistry, computational chemistry, micro-and nanomaterials, functional materials and metamaterials.

The focus includes technologies based on e.g. fuel cells, Li-ion batteries, supercapasitors, superconductors, solar cells, thermoelectric devices and LEDs, as well as nuclear power, where major material advances are still needed to be realised before the technologies can be put into large-scale everyday use.
