Solid State Chemistry and Materials CSM

The team Solid State Chemistry and Materials (CSM) activities covers a continuum from fundamental to applied research

It deals with the research of new materials (in particular: metal atom clusters, rare-earth based hybrid materials, oxo-anions and oxides) and their integration in devices.
This team develops a strong expertise and know-how in inorganic and organic syntheses, engineering & crystal chemistry of thin films and multiscale characterizations.
Beyond new fundamental knowledge, this research aims to tackle actual societal challenges in the fields of energy storage and conversion, optics, microelectronics, environment and biotechnologies.
