Welcome to the Physical Chemistry of Materials Group
This group investigates the fundamental properties of electrochemically and catalytically active materials, as well as their fabrication into functional and practical systems. Many studies lead to laboratory prototypes for electrical energy storage, catalytic reactors and separation systems. Other programs seek a basic understanding of atomic level mechanisms, materials stability, and interfaces.
Key research areas:
Key facilities and expertise:
- Electrochemical and battery cycling
- Synthesis and characterization of air sensitive materials
- Vacuum film deposition by sputtering, evaporation, chemical vapor deposition
