The Materials Science division at IRH consists of colleagues from both materials science and computational mechanics backgrounds. The group actively works on cutting-edge research and education in next-generation materials for sustainable transition from current energy system to a low-carbon energy system.
We are involved in the design of materials to address the solution for the development of sustainable energy.
We perform calculation and simulation study using DFT, Grand Canonical Monte Carlos, Platon and the IAST method to understand the property of the materials.
We are interested in establishing structure-property relationship that allows the scientific community to develop materials for applications in gas storage and separation and catalysis.
Measurement of the characteristics and behaviour of our materials in real world applications, such as storage materials, electrodes, membranes, etc.
