Our division is engaged in researches on ”HYDRIDES” for energy applications. The main subjects are the development of high-density hydrogen storage materials for fuel cell applications, lithium/sodium fast-ionic conductors for battery applications and superconducting materials. The primary objective is the development of novel hydrogen storage materials for automotive applications, using multiple cutting-edge techniques for atomic/electronic characterization and first-principles calculations. In addition to the hydrogen storage materials, we are engaged in the development of fast-ionic conductors and the implementation of them into next-generation energy devices.
