Batteries, fuel cells, electrochemical sensors and analysis systems are the main research topics in the Applied Electrochemistry Department. Research and development work for both the civil and the defense sector ranges from material characterization and optimization to the development of methods and the production of prototypes. Comprehensive testing and development methods for fuel cells, batteries and components are developed and offered as part of our service.
