The aim of the membranes laboratory is to develop dense metallic (Pd-based) membranes for H2 separation.
Chemical Synthesis Laboratories
The material synthesis laboratory is well equipped with sophisticated high pressure autoclaves, microwave synthesizers, vacuum schlenk line and other required tools.
Electrochemical Characterization Laboratory
To assess the performance of energy storage devices, different electrochemical techniques are used in a simulated environment such as simple charge-discharge cycling, cyclic voltammetry, electrochemical impedance spectroscopy.
Device Fabrication Laboratory
After fabrication of electrodes and membranes, they are assembled in energy storage devices in moisture and moisture-free environment with the help of argon-filled glovebox to be ready for assessment.
Energy Storage Synthesis Laboratory
Energy storage materials are the core of the program where a verity of electroactive and functional materials is synthesized.
It has an advanced scanning electron microscope including powder samples preparation for FESEM and the lab also possess XRD, two educational AFMs, microCT and fluorescent optical microscope.
Catalytic Evaluation Laboratory
It is mainly dedicated to evaluate heterogeneous catalysts by using fixed bed reactors at a reaction temperature and pressure up to 900 °C and 10 bar, respectively.
In this lab, porous materials such as Zeolites, MOFs, porous polymers, and porous carbons are tested for their gas uptake capacities.
It performs cutting-edge research on the combustion of pure hydrogen, hydrogen-enriched fuels, and hydrogen carrier fuels in state-of-the-art burner technologies of gas turbines and boilers, as well as in internal combustion engines.
