About Me


Thin Films
X Rays
Ferroelectric Materials


The research is focused on the study of novel nanostructured thin films with special structural and advanced functional properties at the incorporated interfaces. The aim is to develop new materials towards improved energy applications, such as solid-state batteries and thermoelectric energy generators. This research is part of the “Storage and Conversion of Renewable Energy” application area of the MESA+ Institute for Nanotechnology, which goal it is to exploit and expand the present expertise in the field of nano-related energy research through multidisciplinary collaboration between various research groups.
