Research Areas

Prof. Nilges (b. 1971) conducts research into inorganic solid-state and materials chemistry, focusing on ion-conducting compounds, electrode materials for Li  batteries and thermoelectric materials. His research activities include developing new synthesis strategies as well as understanding and optimizing the physical properties of energy materials and devising new conceptual approaches for them. Much of his work involves investigating main group and late transition metal compounds and optimizing them in terms of their electric and thermoelectric properties.
