Solid Electrolytes as Components of Future Solid State Batteries / University of Giessen, Germany
Jürgen Janek is a professor at Justus Liebig University of Giessen, Germany. His research interests cover physical chemistry of solids, solid state ionics, electrochemistry, solid state reactions and transport processes, nano-ionics, plasma chemistry, energy-related materials, transport and reactions in high temperature fuel cells and batteries. This work has resulted in publication of approximately 270 full (peer reviewed) papers and about a dozen patents. He has received numerous awards and prizes, among them a PhD grant by Funds of the Chemical Industry (FCI), the Karl-Winnacker-Award (Hoechst-Aventis Foundation), the Nernst-Haber-Bodenstein-Award (Deutsche Bunsen-Gesellschaft für Physikalische Chemie, the Gerhard-Hess-Award by DFG (German Research Foundation) and the Wilhelm Jost Lecture and Medal (Deutsche Bunsen-Gesellschaft für Physikalische Chemie). Recently he focusses to the study of solid state batteries and solid electrolytes in lithium ion batteries.
