Title: Exploring High-Entropy Materials for Electrochemical Applications
Abstract: High-entropy ceramics are a novel materials class with rapidly increasing significance since their discovery in 2015. Their unique crystal structure and the enormous compositional freedom allows tailoring these compounds towards desired properties, thus enabling the development and optimization of new innovative materials for many existing applications.
This talk will give an overview about the general high-entropy concept and will describe the utilization of high-entropy ceramics for electrochemical applications. The fundamental impacts of high-entropy on material properties will be discussed, especially in the application areas of batteries and catalytic materials.
