The multifunction required by clean energy sources i.e. electrochemical activity, electronic/ionic mobility, mechanical strength, durability, depends on the optimization of each elementary process and material and on the design of multimaterial, multifunctional structures and interfaces. Inputs of multi-scale characterizations and theoretical calculations will allow designing new materials and system design.

Research will be conducted regarding 3 main types of clean energy :
  • IRP 5-1. Polymer Electrolyte Membrane fuel cell (PEMFCs, SAFCs)
  • IRP 5-2. Electrochemical systems based on ceramic oxides (SOFCs, PCFCs, SOECs)
  • IRP 5-3. Lithium battery with a focus on new polymer electrolytes, designed interfaces and redox-polymers
The fundamental issues raised by the previous systems are :
  1. understanding of the electrolyte, electrode, interlayer natures and nanostructures,
  2. scrutinization of the system design on the electrochemical generator durability and electrical performances ( e.g. by using the coupling of physical or spectroscopic methods with electrochemical ones),
  3. the relation between theoretical approaches (multiscale modeling, ab initio calculations) and experimental ones.
