Aiming for the world’s highest research center on energy and environmental materials

2022.12.28 Update
Our mission is developing energy and environment-related materials for realizing energy network systems that enable us to utilize a wide variety of energy with high efficiencies.
In particular, we are developing materials for solar cells, rechargeable batteries, hydrogen production systems, thermoelectric devices, etc.; and electrode catalysts as a common material among these devices. Computational science and materials informatics for material design and mechanism elucidation are also our research subjects to accelerate the materials development. 
This center includes Cryogenic Center for Liquid Hydrogen and Materials Science (CLean) and NIMS Battery Research Platform; the former is developing materials and systems for magnetic refrigeration, which is crucial for efficient liquid hydrogen production in the coming hydrogen society, and the latter is an infrastructure facility for developing next-generation batteries. We are aiming for the world’s leading research center on energy and environmental materials with the aids of these infrastructures.
