Prof. dr. B. Dam

Research interests

The focus of my research is to find relations between the growth, the (defect)structure and the physical properties of materials. In my present research, I focus on the development of materials for sustainable energy applications, such as hydrogen sensors, hydrogen storage materials, hydrogen membranes, smart windows, and photo-anodes for solar water splitting.
