Applied Energy Materials

Applied Energy Materials
The Applied Energy Materials group focuses on synthesis and processing of energy materials including energy storage materials, solar energy materials, high performance materials and prototype development based on modern atomistic computational, synthesis and processing methods.

Materials for a Next-Generation Electric Grid

Scaling clean energy requires new materials that can help boost the amount of renewables we harvest and can store surpluses for when they are needed. In the Applied Energy Materials group, we are developing:

  • Energy storage materials
  • Solar energy materials
  • High performance materials
