Research overview

We are interested in the relationship between the properties and behaviour of functional materials and the structure and composition of these materials down to the atomic scale. Particular interests are ionically- and electronically-conducting materials for fuel cells and other electrochemical reactors; heterogeneous catalysts for pollution abatement and fuel cells; and Electro-Active Polymers for actuators devices. We use electrochemical techniques, especially Impedance Spectroscopy, high resolution Transmission Electron Microscopy and catalysis techniques such as Temperature-Programmed Desorption, Reduction and Oxidation (TPD/R/O).
