High-Performance Ceramics for Electrochemical Energy Technologies
R & D at Forschungszentrum Jülich (Jülich Research Center/DE) concentrates on three global challenges: health, energy and environment, and information technology. Jülich is a member of the Helmholtz Association (HGF) of German Research Centres.
The Institute of Energy and Climate Research – IEK uses a holistic approach to scientifically and technologically accompany Germany’s energy transition, evaluating its impact on the atmosphere and climate.
The IEK was founded in 2010, consisting today of 14 divisions. Materials Synthesis and Processing – IEK-1 focuses on an unique combination of materials science and the related processing technologies to manufacture structures, layers, multi-layered parts and components. The envisaged application fields are solid-state batteries, environmental-related membranes, solid oxide fuel and electrolyzer cells as well as materials for high-temperature applications.
