Materials Electrotechnical-, micro- and nanomaterials
DipLab - Mobile short circuit laboratory
This laboratory will be used both in research and development to identify and improve manufacturing unit properties during network failures.
SINTEF Energy Research operates laboratories for high voltage, high power and climatic testing. Customers are manufacturers, suppliers and users of electric power equipment.
Laboratory for advanced materials characterisation
The advanced materials characterisation laboratory in Oslo is equipped with a wide range of microscopes and surface analysis instruments able to image and analyse specimens on many length and depth scales. The local chemical composition and structure can also be determined from the micro- down to the atomic level.
SiC4LED – Novel fluorescent silicon carbide growth approach for white LEDs
The main objective of the project aims to grow a new type of compound semiconductor crystal, fluorescent silicon carbide (f-SiC), by applying the liquid solution phase epitaxial (LPE) technology, and to preliminarily examine the feasibility of fabricating the monolithic white light-emitting diodes (LEDs). It is expected to save up to 20% of energy consumption for SiC growth.
SURKINOX – Designing rules for enhancing SURface KINetics in functional OXides for clean energy technologies
The project aims to develop novel approaches to design property-driven materials with nano-functionalized surfaces and nano-structured thin films as well as necessary experimental techniques to determine catalytic properties and rate determining steps in specific processes relevant for ceramic fuel cells, electrolysers and gas separation membranes.
CO2BioPEC - CO2 utilization by formate dehydrogenase biocatalyst in a PhotoElectrochemical Cell
The main objective of CO2BioPEC is to demonstrate a bio-hybrid photoelectrochemical cell, in which solar energy is efficiently captured and at the same time, CO2 is converted to energy-rich compounds in the presence of formate dehydrogenase enzymes as biocatalyst.
Green light for the world’s first intelligent oil pipelines
Electronics installed in Norwegian oil pipelines have been tested both at sea and in transport vessel reeling simulations. All that now remains is to install them offshore.
Plastic solar cells see the light of day
In the future, you may be able to buy solar cells for your roof from a roll, by the metre.
