Research areas

  • Fuel Cells: Materials and Systems
  • Materials Chemistry including Nanomaterials
  • Physical Chemistry
  • Surface Science
  • Supercapacitors: Charge Storage Materials and Systems
  • We focus on material synthesis and system development for electrochemical power sources, which include polymer electrolyte membrane fuel cells, supercapacitors and batteries. In the material side, the emphasis is on the development of nanostructured electrocatalysts, multifunctional materials, nanocomposite ion conducting membranes etc, whereas for system development, we focus on electrode and cell fabrications. The research in the lab offers a unique opportunity to work in a broad area of basic and applied chemistry. The lab is equipped with most modern facilites for material synthesis, characterization, system fabrication and testing.
