We, the researches of AG Rameshan, are interested in catalytic processes on heterogeneous catalyst surfaces.
The ERC project TUCAS started in 2017 and is part of our research group “Model Catalysis at Surfaces” at the Institute of Materials Chemistry at the Vienna University of Technology. Specifically, it deals with perovskite materials, their surfaces, and ways to influence their properties (like stability and activity) by various measures: doping, pre-treatment (in different atmospheres), polarisation, exsolution of nanoparticles…
These perovskite materials are especially interesting, as they show great potential in processes relating to renewable energy production and chemical energy storage.
We use a wide range of lab-based and Synchrotron based techniques (in-situ spectroscopies) as well as theoretical simulations to study and characterise the properties of our samples.
Stylianos joined us for a 2-month internship.
Patrick joined the TUCAS team to work on his bachelor thesis.
Florian was awarded the “Best Presenter Award” at the XVII International Forum-Contest of Students and Young Researchers.
Tobias (not to be confused with Tobias M.) joined the group to complete his bachelor’s.
