Björn Wickman

Associate Professor at Chemical Physics

My research is in the fields of electrocatalysis, photoelectrocatalysis and surface reactions for environmental and sustainable energy applications. The activities include studies of the electrodes and catalysts for polymer electrolyte membrane fuel cells (PEMFCs), photoelectrochemical hydrogen generation and electrolysis to create sustainable fuels, as well as water cleaning projects. By designing well controlled model systems in combination with powerful analysis and characterization techniques, improved understanding of a large range of important electrochemical systems is obtained.
