Energy Technologies

Our energy technology research is finding leaner-burning combustion technologies as well as physical and chemical technologies for advanced materials, sensors, and controls.

Energy Technologies

Our energy technologies research focuses on two areas: leaner-burning combustion technologies, and physical and chemical technologies for advanced materials, sensors and controls.

Physical and chemical technologies research focuses on technologies for advanced materials, sensors and controls:

  • Chemical analysis (femtosecond laser ablation)
  • Advanced sensors (laser ultrasonics)
  • Advanced materials and nanotechnology for clean energy
    • hydrogen storage
    • nanostructured organic light-emitting diodes
    • nanowires and nanoparticles
  • Photons to fuels (biosynthetic pathways for generating hydrocarbon biofuels in photosynthetic organisms).
