Welcome to the Materials Modeling and Microscopy (M-cube) group.

Research in M-cube is focused on developing quantitative structure-property correlations in materials for energy applications. In order to do so, we use a synergistic combination of electronic structure calculations and aberration-corrected scanning transmission electron microscopy (STEM). We use the knowledge gained from this combination of theory and microscopy to design new materials with improved properties or even new functionalities. Some of the materials that we are currently interested in are complex oxides, compound semiconductors, 2D materials and high-entropy alloys that show novel properties and are important for applications such as in electrocatalysis, solar cells, solid-oxide fuel cells and high-strength materials.
