Our field of research is the development, characterisation and testing of novel materials and processes for renewable energies. While initially working mainly on catalysts for fuel cells, our activities more and more expand into other fields of electrochemical energy conversion like photoelectrocatalysis and photocatalysis as well as into energy storage. Currently we focus on micro- and nanostructured materials like (aligned) carbon nanotubes, carbon nanofibers branched with carbon nanotubes, mesoporous oxides etc.. These may be modified with (photo)electro­catalytically active materials by a variety of techniques, including electropoly­merisation, electro­deposition and CVD. The resulting materials may be applied in many electrochemical devices where high-surface-area electrodes with exactly defined physical and chemical properties are needed, including fuel cells and batteries.
