For the next-generation energy conversion!
Recently, lithium-ion batteries is put on the terminals such as smartphones or PCs, hybrid cars which are necessary for our living mainly due to their high performance. And the development of the large-scale battery is expected for the long-term application of sustainable energies such as wind power generation, solar photovoltaic generation for the use of electric vehicles (EV) in the future. However, many problems still remain unresolved. To break off these problems, Komaba laboratory focuses on the R&D of new materials for advanced battery performance. In particular, we develop a new battery to have a more wealthy life. Furthermore, the studies such as capacitors, enzymatic biofuel cells, and electrochemistry sensors are also carried out in the Komaba laboratory.
