Materials for Energy and Environmental Technologies

Technology innovations in both the energy and environmental fields are critical for a sustainable and carbon-neutral society.

The research conducted by our faculty spans a wide spectrum from the atomistic understanding of the fundamental mechanisms to novel devices that can function with high efficiency and accuracy. Whether the research focuses on nanomaterials or complex structures for energy conversion and storage, or functionalized polymers for water treatment, or even thermal behavior/management of critical electronic circuits or devices, IMSE facilities play an important role to identify the performance-limiting factors. Our research not only has opened up new perspectives to understand materials science, but also enabled startup companies devoted to the next-generation technologies that can change our everyday life.
