Nanoporous Metal evolves from the self-organization of atoms at solid/liquid interfaces, manifesting the evolution kinetics and offering exciting new properties and functionalities.

    Materials displaying fascinating evolution mechanisms and structure-property relationships

Batteries power small electronics, cars, and even the electricity grid, enabling our transition towards renewable energy sources.
Structural Evolution of Electrodes dictates the lifetime of electrochemical devices. Understanding the structural evolution, especially that at nanoscales, paves the way toward stable electrodes for high-performance batteries, electrolyzers, and sensors alike. 

    In-situ characterization of high-capacity electrodes to tackle stability issues.
