Learn more about the idea behind e-conversion and why the research of our members is of such importance for the future of energy supply.

Supercomputers for the perfect material

By |May 21, 2020|

One year ago David Egger became professor for “Theory of Functional Energy Materials” at TU München and member of e-conversion. We asked him about his research, his ideas for the cluster and why he loves being a scientist.

Machine learning for improved fuel cell catalysts

By |May 1, 2020|

Platinum is the common catalyst material for the oxygen reduction in fuel cells and its main cost factor. With a machine learning technique, scientists from e-conversion now can forecast and optimize the performance of catalysts with less platinum.

On the way to new materials for energy conversion

By |Apr 6, 2020|

Three new Hans Fischer Senior Fellows will be joining our community for the next three years: Laura Herz, Ib Chorkendorff and Natalia Shustova will be working on the creation of new materials for energy conversion and on understanding the associated energy conversion processes.

Getting the most energy out of the sunlight

By |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.
