Research Group Ehrenberg - Institute for Applied Materials - Energy Storage Systems (IAM-ESS)

Materials for energy storage: different methods of synthesis, particle morphology control, structural and electrochemical characterization.

The research of the institute of Prof. Helmut Ehrenberg is distributed to different locations at KIT: at Campus North at the Institute of Applied Materials - Energy Storage Systems (IAM-ESS), at Campus South the Institute for Inorganic Chemistry (AOC): Materials Research for Energy Storage and in the MZE building (Materialwissenschaftliches Zentrum für Energiesysteme). The research group has a strong and long-standing expertise in the study of materials for energy storage systems and is divided into the following sections: ‘Carbon-based Energy Materials’, ‘Functional Composite Materials’, ‘Ageing and Fatigue’, ‘Surface- and Interface Analysis’, ‘Novell Synthesis Routes’ and ‘Development of Scattering Techniques for Materials Characterization’. The research at the MZE mainly focuses on Li, Na-ion and Li/Mg hybrid battery electrode materials, structural and electrochemical characterization such as capacity retention, cycling stability, charge-discharge mechanisms as well as stability depending on composition.
