Electrochemical Energy Storage

Renewable energies are in need of efficient energy storage and energy conversion systems due to their variability in power output.

At the INT we develop novel nanostructured materials for electrochemical energy storage and analyze their performance. We work on optimizing their performance through in-situ NMR, XRD and Mössbauer studies of Li-ion materials.

High Entropy Materials for Energy Storage

High‐entropy materials, especially high‐entropy oxides (HEO), are of interest due to their unique structural characteristics and possibility for tailoring of functional properties.
