Crystal structure of LaGaO3

New energy generation and storage devices are strongly requested at present. In this laboratory, inorganic functional materials which can be used for energy and environment are studied, in particular, materials for solid oxide fuel cells, advanced type Li rechargeable battery (dual carbon, Li-air, and hybrid capacitor), photocatalyst for hydrogen generation, steam reforming catalyst, and automotive exhaust catalyst.
