RG Dr. Wolfgang Zeier
- Welcome to Zeier Research Group
Our group investigates structure-property relationships in inorganic solids for the development of clean-energy storage and harvesting technologies. Specifically, we focus on thermoelectric and all-solid-state-battery applications. The core of our research approach employs materials synthesis and structural characterization and is complemented with measurement and modeling of ionic, electronic and thermal transport properties.
