Much of our research is currently focused on materials for energy technology, but we are also involved in research regarding materials for pharmaceutical applications and other areas where advanced materials can be utilized. The materials we are studying includes concrete and geopolymer concrete containing phase change materials, and hydrogels for salinity gradient energy generation.
Research instrument park
We are in the process of building up a laboratory for characterizing different materials. See our Research instrument park (site under construction) for more information about our instrumentation units.
