2017/02/02: MRS Bulletin (Cambridge) featured our research work about designing new materials ab initio in Energy Focus.
Before hydrogen can be fully exploited in alternative and clean fuel systems, such as fuel-cell vehicles, these systems need a cost-effective, energy-efficient way to store and deliver the hydrogen at desirable temperature and pressure conditions. Now, researchers have proposed an inexpensive material design that appears able to store and deliver bulk hydrogen (H2) at an unprecedented rate... [html] [pdf]

2015/02/12: Paper published about fundamentals in CO2 reduction.
Have you ever wondered what happens to CO2 in the first reduction step and how can you characterize it? In this paper we describe computationally and experimentally how to do it. We used different levels of DFT and discussed how you can characterize such phenomenon with In situ FT-IR measurements ... [More]
