Welcome to EMDL at KAIST!


The Electrochemical Materials Design Laboratory (EMDL) is a new multi-disciplinary laboratory in the field of energy storage/conversion combining with nanotechnology. We aim to understand surface/interface electrochemical reactions in the new energy storage/conversion systems to resolve scientific and engineering challenges for green-energy technology.
