Program goals

We aim to achieve a detailed understanding, via a combination of synthesis of new materials, experimental and computational approaches, of how the nature, structure, and dynamics of nanostructured interfaces affect energy generation, conversion and storage with emphasis on fuel cells and batteries.

Brief Description

The major challenges relate to materials performance in energy generation, conversion and storage technologies especially fuel cells and batteries. To address these, we will prepare and characterize novel nanoscale materials including ordered intermetallic phases and “atomically engineered” complex oxides. These will be characterized through novel experimental tools and computational platforms.
