Congratulations to Marc for successfully defending his PhD thesis titled "Nanoconfinement of complex hydrides in porous hosts for hydrogen storage applications".
A warm greeting to Prof. Yuehui Wang who has joined us from the Zhonshan Institute, University of Electronic Science and Technology of China.
Congratulations to James for his new job. Best wishes and we hope you do well.
Three new PhD students joined the group.
Congratulations to Giulia Balducci for successfully defending her PhD thesis titled "Light weight metal hydride - hydroxide systems for solid-state hydrogen storage".
Our interests lie in the synthesis, structure and physical properties of inorganic solids.
The underlying theme in our approach is to identify and modify materials on the basis of
their atomic or ionic arrangements. To achieve this in often exotic systems of materials,
requires use of original and unusual synthetic methodology.
We are primarily concerned with investigating non-oxide systems where new structure types and bonding arrangements lead to unexpected and exciting properties.
Our aims are to discover new materials with potentially useful physical properties, particularly with projected applications in electronics, information technology and sustainable energy.
