Dr. Albert Tarancón appointed ICREA Research Professor

 

ICREA community, the Catalan Institution for Research and Advanced Studies, that hires the most talented and extraordinary scientists and academics of Catalunya, incorporates this year Dr. Albert Tarancón as a ICREA research professor in recognition of his research work, synonymous of scientific and academic excellence on a global scale.

Dr. Albert Tarancón, a Research Professor at IREC, has been appointed by ICREA to continue leading the Nanoionics and Fuel Cells group. The research work carried out by Albert is in advanced materials for energy applications. In particular, he has been developing innovative concepts for improving the performance of different solid state energy devices such as Solid Oxide Fuel and Electrolysis Cells (SOFC/SOEC), ThermoElectric Generators (TEGs) or Li-ion batteries for energy storage and portable power applications.

In the last years, Albert has been specifically developing new concepts for the unexplored field of Nanoionics. Nanoionics is called to drive a new revolution similarly to Nanoelectronics, underlining the relevance of size effects and interfaces on mass transfer, transport and storage. Albert's group is pioneer in implementing interface-dominated nanomaterials in real devices for radically new applications. In this direction, he has also recently been awarded with an ERC CoG to implement disruptive Nanoionics concepts in Si-integrated micro-SOFC Technology.

From IREC we congratulate to Dr. A. Tarancón for his new ICREA position!
