Electrochemical Energy Storage

Team November 2017 small.jpg
Prof. Novák's team as of November 2017


Focus of the Section

Our vision is the development of the best electrochemical energy storage system.

We work on rechargeable batteries, mainly lithium based. The scientific goal is a profound understanding of electrochemical processes in complex, mainly nonaqueous systems. In particular, of utmost scientific interest are the numerous interactions of all components of electrochemical energy storage systems (batteries, supercapacitors, and hybrids) determining the safety and life time of such systems.

The work equally considers the synthesis of novel materials for electrochemical energy storage and the modification of surface and bulk of known materials (e.g., carbon), and material characterization, keeping in mind the entire span from basic science to industrial applications. To answer the scientific questions, we develop various sophisticated in situ methods for use in the field of nonaqueous solid-state electrochemistry and investigate the physi­cal and electrochemical proper­ties of host materials and electrochemical interfaces in situ. Also, we do electrochemical engineering work on three-dimensional electrodes and characterize industrial batteries and battery systems.
