FINO Lab Gets NSF Grant for Studies of Oxide Nanocomposites for Catalysis

Our collaborative project with Prof. Byron Farnum in the Auburn Chemistry department was awarded from the Solid State and Materials Chemistry program at NSF! Over this three year project, we’ll be looking at epitaxial spinel and perovskite thin films to understand their physical and chemical behaviors as catalysts and then integrating them into nanocomposites to serve as bifunctional catalysts for the oxygen evolution and oxygen reduction reactions for hydrogen fuel cells. Check out more here and watch for presentations at conferences soon!
