Research efforts are devoted to design, synthesis, and evaluation of solid-state inorganic materials with the goal to (1) discover new materials with significantly useful technological applications combining multiple interesting physical properties and (2) to understand and control the interplay between coexisting functionalities. Of particular interest are promising materials for spintronic, energy conversion (thermoelectric, photovoltaic) and energy storage applications.
