Energy Research Area: Multilayered ceramic systems and nanostructured ceramics and composites for next generation energy conversion and energy storage systems

College of Engineering
Materials Science and Engineering

The research in the group is focused on the processing and performance of multilayered ceramic systems, nanostructured ceramics and composites and hierarchical porosity ceramics for a broad range of next generation energy conversion and storage systems. Specific projects are on coatings for next generation power plants and for hydrogen production, optimized processing of planar solid oxide fuel cells, engineered porosity ceramics for thermal energy storage and catalysts for fuel cells, thermoelectric ceramics, and nanostructured ceramic composites for next generation nuclear power reactors.
