Physics of Energy Conversion and Storage
The group of Prof. Bandarenka conducts research in the area of physics of energy conversion and storage. The main topics include the design and implementation of so-called electro-catalysts and better understanding and characterization of the corresponding electrified interfaces. The catalyst design is based on a bottom-up approach using input from electrochemical surface science and starting from model surfaces.
