NEWS

- Dr. Ulrich Ulmer was awarded with the 2017 award from the Peter and Luise Hager Foundation for the best thesis in the field of Chemical Engineering at KIT. Thesis title: "The effect of impurities on performance and cost of V-Fe-Cr-Ti based solid solution alloys"

-  Our paper "Small Ti clusters for catalysis of hydrogen exchange in NaAlH4" from 2003 in Nanotechnology has recently been awarded as one of the TOP 25 papers of the journal of the past 25 years, see also page at IOP .

-  Our recent "NANOHy" project has been featured by HORIZON 2020 - THe EU Framework Programme for Research and Innovation

-  A proposal led by the Fichtner group and NANOMAT has been granted in the highly competitive round of the recent European Future and Emerging Technologies (FET) Open Call on "Novel ideas for radically new technologies". Out of 822 proposals submitted the third and final cut-off of the H2020-FETOPEN-2014/2015 call 13 have been retained to prepare for grant agreements. The submitted proposal ("LiRichFCC") outlines research on a new cathode material based on a new storage principle, as a result of which energy storage densities can be increased beyond those of systems known so far.
