prof.dr. (F.M.) Fokko Mulder
The focus of the research of prof.dr. Fokko Mulder are the fundamentals as well as practical aspects of energy storage and conversion materials for renewable energy applications.
The overall goal is to study materials and methods that can contribute to the large scale implementation of renewable energy storage, and with that can enable large scale introduction of varying renewable energy sources.
The materials studied include:
- hydrogen storage materials
- battery materials
The fundamental aspects studied include the physical effects of nanostructuring, the reversibility of hydrogen and lithium storage materials, electrochemical reactions, and in general factors that enable efficient and durable functioning of the materials.
