Research at the TEM Gemini Centre

We has identified four focus areas within we see even potential for growth and an essential role for unsolved open issues. TEM plays an important role in these research areas, which will be strategically important in the future.

Research topics

Aluminium activities (light metals)

TEM has proven to be a crucial characterization tool to understand and improve the efficiency of both conventional and novel types of solar cells. The TEM Gemini Centre activities within solar cells include both studies of conventional silicon solar cell materials and new materials.

Catalysis and membrane materials

Catalysis is an important area of application for TEM, and the Centre has strong interaction with the national catalysis environment, including NTNU Chemical Engineering department.

Energy materials and solar cells

TEM has proven to be a crucial characterization tool to understand and improve the efficiency of both conventional and novel types of solar cells. The TEM Gemini Centre activities within solar cells include both studies of conventional silicon solar cell materials and new materials.

Nanotechnology

The TEM Gemini Centre has several small and larger projects related to studying nanoparticles, 1D-nanostructures (i.e. nanowires, carbon nanotubes), thin films and there is an increasing interest in 2D-crystals such as graphene.
