Welcome to the homepage of the Stimming group.
Based in the School of Chemistry at Newcastle University we are physicists and chemists working on electrified interfaces and the energy conversion processes that take place thereon. Surfaces and interfaces delimit distinguishable regions of matter and are the locations of gradients which are the driving force for processes.
Our research is focused on Energy and Nanostructures. The topic Energy deals with electrochemical energy conversion and energy storage. We do fundamental research on devices such as fuel cells, batteries and supercapacitors. In addition we look at the big picture, how the application of electrochemical devices can change economy and environment.
The topic Nanostructures investigates single molecules or nanoparticles on electrodes. These small entities can be either catalyst nanoparticles, biomolecules such as enzymes or DNA, or large inorganic molecules.
