objective of EFree

To accelerate the discovery of energy-relevant materials that can tolerate transient extremes in pressure and temperature.

Collaborative research will be conducted--high-pressure studies toward discovering novel materials with optimal properties, including fuels with exceedingly high hydrogen contents, superconductors at record high temperatures, and key components resistive to extremely harsh environments. We will design alternative routs to bring the novel materials to ambient conditions for energy applications.
