The principal aim of the electrochemistry group
is to study the fundamental physicochemical processes that are involved
in energy storage systems for storing intermittent renewable energy.
More specifically, we are systematically varying the structural
(topography, allotropes) and electronic properties (doping, surface
chemical functionalization) of solid state materials, followed by
a comprehensive characterization of their consequent functional
properties using a variety of complementary in situ or
in operando analytical techniques.
The electrochemistry research group, hosted by the Department of
Inorganic Chemistry of the FHI, is composed of a team of multidisciplinary
scientists performing fundamental and applied experimental research
framed within three research areas, namely silicon based anode for
lithium ion batteries, water electrolysis, and charge transport
characterization across interfaces.
