The Driscoll group is interested in use 2 different areas in 'Materials for Energy Applications" : oxides in photovoltaics and developing nanostructured epitaxial materials with improved performance for solid electrolytes for SOFC/ solid state batteries. For the solar area, we work on n-type and p-type electrodes based on oxides and also on new absorber materials. For the electrolyte area, we have developed materials with 2x increased ionic conductivities in nanostructured composites and are interested to adopt these methodologies to solid state electrochemical systems, in general.
