Outline Activities
Our research activities aim at the development of advanced materials and systems for efficient hydrogen storage and transportation, incorporating the exploration of basic scientific principles relevant to them. In particular, we focus on the development of metal hydrides and complex hydrides for “high-density hydrogen storage”, as well as “other novel functions” such as electrochemical properties. Currently we are working on projects involving the syntheses, atomic/electronic structures analyses and property characterizations of hydrides. The main research themes are shown as follows,
・ Syntheses and property characterizations of light element based hydrides
・ Analyses of atomic arrangements and electronic structures of hydrides
・ Establishment of designing guidelines of hydrides for high efficient hydrogen storage/transportation
・ Exploration and designing of hydrides with novel functions such as electrochemical properties
