HIU Young Investigator Groups
HIU offers young scientists extensive opportunities for optimally preparing their careers as well as space to pursue their own research.
Helmholtz Young Investigators Group Zeis
Since 2012, the Helmholtz Young Investigators Group led by Roswitha Zeis has been studying the further development of a type of fuel cell that makes it possible to utilize the limited resources of fossil fuels more efficiently by, for example, taking into account the different degrees of purity in the hydrogen that is used.
Young Investigator Group NEW E²
The young investigator research group NEW E2, led by Dominic Bresser, focuses on the development and investigation of innovative active materials, specifically for the negative electrode of lithium-ion batteries as well as the development of organic (polymer-based) batteries. A particular focus is set on the beneficial combination of different lithium storage and conduction mechanisms to allow for higher capacities, improved rate capability and efficient charge transport in order to foster the energy and power density of the resulting battery cells.
