Fundamentals of Energy Conversion Processes

Getting the most energy out of the sunlight

Mar 5, 2020|

It´s a pity – most photocatalysts have an absorption maximum outside the sunlight spectrum. But now scientists from the e-conversion cluster were able to significantly increase the energy yield by using nanophotonic methods.

Finding the right blend

Feb 27, 2020|

In the battery of the future, solids will replace the currently used electrolyte solutions. A team of e-conversion scientists has now developed a series of new sodium ion conductors. The secret of the best material in the series lies in the exact mixing of the ingredients.
