 Our research team is focused on improving the electrochemical properties of fuel cell electrodes. Our current research activities include: 1. Investigating the structural and defective properties of strontium and ferrite-based perovskite materials to understand fundamental physical phenomena at both macroscopic and nanoscale levels. performance. 2. Exploring proton exchange membrane (PEM) fuel cells and electrolyzers, which are important components in energy conversion systems. We aim to understand their functioning and potential applications in sustainable hydrogen production.3. Recognizing the potential of PEM systems for sustainable hydrogen production, we are committed to enhancing their durability and efficiency. Our focus is on improving the performance and durability of these systems, ensuring they can contribute to a greener and more sustainable future.
