Welcome to Prof. Wiemhöfer's Group

Our research was focusing on conducting functional materials. Materials of interest included, for instance, crystalline compounds such as silver and copper sulfides, mixed conducting oxides with perovskite structure, oxygen ion conductors such as ceria and zirconia as well as polymers, in particular polysiloxanes and polyphosphazenes. Synthesis, characterization, and in particular, the electrochemistry of the investigated materials were our main interest. The background consisted of functional applications in chemical sensors, gas permeation membranes, fuel cells, switchable storage devices, and in the last years, increasingly important in lithium-ion and lithium polymer batteries.
