Prof. Dr. Simone Raux is head of the institute “Nanospectroscopy for Design and Optimisation of Energy-Related Materials” at the Helmholtz-Zentrum Berlin für Materialien und Energie in Berlin as well as S-Professor at the Department of Physics of the Humboldt Universität zu Berlin. Her institute works on developing novel nanostructured materials and hybrid materials that hold promise for the conversion and storage of energy. Prof. Raoux is also responsible for is the synthesis and analysis laboratory EMIL, which will soon offer unique possibilities for characterising materials in situ using the synchrotron radiation from BESSY II without interrupting the ultra-high vacuum.
- state-of-the-art synthesis and in-situ and in-operando X-ray analysis of materials and devices for energy conversion, energy storage, and energy efficiency
