Nobel Prize for Jena-born researcher
This news received on October 9, 2019 was celebrated not only by the prizewinners, but also by the researchers at the CEEC Jena: John B. Goodenough was one of three scientists to receive the Nobel Prize for Chemistry in 2019, and was honored for his work on the development of lithium ion batteries.
This was not only a great honor for the Jena-born researcher, it has also given the current research in the field of batteries an additional impetus: This research is currently being driven forward primarily at the Center for Energy and Environmental Chemistry (CEEC) Jena at the Friedrich Schiller University.
Now, the CEEC will have access to an additional 4,000 sqm of floor space with its new research building. CEEC Jena II will not only allow for special experiments on new types of energy storage materials that are developed at the Jena university - the associated center for application is also intended to bring the research findings to maturity for use in industry. The researchers will work on innovative concepts for battery systems, solar cells and integrated components.back
