Research Activities

In the near future, all-solid-state lithium-ion batteries are expected to be used as power sources for electric vehicles, and all-solid-state sodium-ion batteries as a safe, low-cost solution for domestic solar energy storage. The pursuit of a carbon neutral society has created a momentum towards developing solid-state batteries worldwide.

Our research is very promising, as it makes use of materials and devices with a lot of potential for practical application. Our university is an advanced research institute, whose research quality is one of the best in the world. The research equipment required for material synthesis and evaluation are readily available here.
