Tor Olav Sunde

Research Scientist

My background and main competence is on materials science and technology, and on the application of materials to energy-related applications. Mainly ceramic oxides, but also metals, semiconductors and polymers. I am preparing these materials in different shapes, powders, nanomaterials, thin films and fibres. I also focus on the application of these materials in various fields, mainly related to energy conversion and storage, batteries, hydrogen fuel cells and electrolysers, solar cells, sensors.
