Our MissionAdvancement of electrochemical energy storage and conversion by
- developing novel electrochemical materials, cells and devices
- providing insight into electrochemical materials, cells and device properties.
As a Research Institute’s Laboratory we are bridging the gap between fundamental science and applied engineering by combining both academically as well as industrially relevant questions. For all outlined devices we not only develop fundamental understanding of materials on atomic and molecular level (electrochemical materials sciences and electrocatalysis), but also on the applied development of technical cells and devices, e.g., fuel cell systems.
Topics of ECL
On all technical complexity levels, we are developing and utilizing advanced in situ diagnostic tools to gain insights on properties and processes from the nanometer to the centimeter scale, respectively, often making use of PSI’s unique large scale facilities.
