Kaveh Edalati Laboratory

Our group in Kyushu University is a part of the International Institute for Carbon-Neutral Energy Research (I2CNER), an institute with the mission of conducting fundamental interdisciplinary research to reduce CO2 emission. The strategy of our group toward this mission is developing novel multifunctional energy/nano materials as well as by engineering the lattice defects. Our methodology is mainly based on experimental approaches with deep nanostructural characterization in combination with theoretical studies. We specialize particularly in tailoring the nanostructural features and multifunctional properties of metallic and ceramic materials under large plastic strain and/or high pressure using severe plastic deformation methods such as high-pressure torsion (HPT). Our research focus is currently on three main topics.

- Development of Super-Strained Photocatalysts with High Activity for Hydrogen Production

- Development of New Hydrides for Room-Temperature Hydrogen Storage

- Development of Nanomaterials with Unique Mechanical Properties
