DLR-DAAD Doctoral Fellowship

Nr. 628: Electrochemical analysis for molten salt storage systems

What to expect:

The work relates to a deeper material understanding of molten nitrate storage systems in commercial concentrated solar power (CSP) plants. In future, these storage systems can also be used for green industrial processes and large-scale electricity storage systems (Carnot batteries). The planned work of the research fellowship focuses on material and electrochemical aspects and builds on previous work and existing experimental setups of the research group.

The main tasks of the doctorate include carrying out electrochemical experiments on molten salts and evaluating the results with regard to the use of molten salt storage systems for end user applications. The results are presented within the team, at international conferences and in scientific publications. You will also be responsible for supervising students working on their Bachelor's and Master's theses. The work is integrated into a team with experienced staff for support.
