Forschungszentrum Jülich GmbH

Institute of Energy and Climate Research (IEK-1)

Materials scientists, chemists, physicists, mechanical engineers and technical staff at IEK-1 focus on the development of inorganic materials (in particular functional ceramics) and multi-layered components for highly efficient future energy conversion and storage systems. Our extensive expertise ranging from solid state chemistry and synthesis, powder-based and wet-chemical processing, sintering, to thin film and thermal spraying technologies has allowed for rapid adaptation to the emerging challenges in science, from battery research to ceramic matrix composites.
