Mathias Jørgensen

Mathias Jørgensen has throughout his PhD studies researched complex hydrides and their potential applications as battery- and hydrogen storage materials. Efficient energy storage materials are required in order to take full advantage of sustainable energy sources such as wind- and solar power.

The primary focus of Mathias Jørgensen’s research has been on the relation between the crystal structure and properties of these materials, which, among other findings, has offered new insight into how certain types of battery materials work on the atomic scale.

The PhD degree was completed at the Interdisciplinary Nanoscience Center (iNANO) and Department of Chemistry, Science and Technology, Aarhus University.

This résumé was prepared by the PhD student.
