Materials science expertise and worldwide collaborations

Our efforts in materials science focus on metallic anode and ceramic electrolyte and cathode materials, in particular oxide ceramics with electronic or ionic conductivity. Research and development of ceramic battery components at IEK-1 benefits from a long-standing expertise in ceramic processing and thin film technologies
(see epertise).

Additionally, numerous imaging and physical techniques are available for the characterization of materials and components. The knowledge chain is completed by collaborating with other institutes in order to implement electrochemical methods for measuring cells, modules, and hybrid systems under laboratory and application-relevant conditions as well as in real operation (see projects).
