Our research interest is driven by the application of advanced synthesis techniques including microwave-heated, plasma-based, and soft chemistry methods as well as the development of (self-)regenerative properties of the materials during dynamic energy conversion processes. The within the group designed energy conversion materials cover the fields of thermoelectrics, power-to-X, and photo(electro)catalysis.

The intensive cooperation between the team members at TU Darmstadt and Fraunhofer IWKS allows faster innovation processes by having a comprehensive view on energy conversion materials.
