Outline Activities
In order to achieve a sustainable development in future, energy conversion systems with high efficiency and environmental friendly technology is essentially required. Solid oxide fuel cell with highly efficient power generating system, Li ion rechargeable battery, and related materials are studied. In addition, new hydrogen production systems based on photochemistry and new reforming reaction using membrane reactor was studied. In addition, new amperometric sensor for combustion controle is investigated.
