Our team of chemists, physicists, engineers, and materials scientists is dedicated to researching novel materials for electrochemical and functional applications.
We explore electrochemical capacitors, also known as supercapacitors, as an emerging technology for highly efficient and fast energy storage and recovery.
Ion electrosorption is a facile technology platform for advanced and energy efficient water treatment - especially for water with low ionic strength and industrial waste water.
We explore carbon flow electrodes as a transformative element for energy storage, recovery, recuperation, and water desalination.
Comprehensive understanding of complex electrochemical processes can only be established via rigorous application of novel in situ methods.
Advanced applications require thorough materials characterization - ideally with complementary and combined methods and techniques.
One of our obligations as scientists is to give back to society and to provide the best experience possible to students. We remain dedicated to these goals by hosting high school students, presenting at open days, providing student exchange activities, contributioning to popular science journals, and, of cousre, teaching at Saarland University.
