Advanced Materials & Catalysts
Materials used in advanced energy conversion and storage systems must have the required strength, stability, and functionality in order to demonstrate high performance as well as economic feasibility. New materials could benefit an array of energy applications including fuel cell membranes and catalysts, hydrogen storage tanks, wind turbine blades, radioactive product handling, and electricity distribution.
New materials for energy systems may be highly specialized and molecularly complex. Recent advances in molecular-scale engineering and imaging will assist in the design and characterization of materials with the desired properties and function.Investigators in Advanced Materials & Catalysts
