From the viewpoint of effective use of energy resources and environmental conservation, there is a need to further improve the efficiency of existing energy devices and systems. Our research group focused on batteries and electrochemical systems, considering next-generation automobiles and future energy management systems. By considering a cross-sectional comprehensive view of everything, from nanoscale material interface phenomena to the scale of actual use environments, we clarify the reaction transport phenomena and controlling factors and propose guidelines and improvements to technologies to achieve higher performance. In particular, our research is based on the motto of five-element integration: actual material measurement, actual complex three-dimensional structure, fusion of measurement and calculation, theoretical model building, and optimum design support.
Target Devices & Systems: Lithium-ion batteries, polymer electrolyte fuel cells, all-solid-state batteries, air batteries, redox flow batteries, electrolytic synthesis technology, electrolytic separation technology
