HZB works on highly efficient solar cells of the next generations, for example on thin-film technologies and new classes of materials such as perovskites. In doing so, they seek contact with industry at an early
stage. They are developing novel catalysts and materials that convert sunlight into chemical energy and thus produce renewable fuels, for example hydrogen. Battery materials with better properties are also
being explored at HZB. Another important field of research is quantum materials for tomorrow's energy-efficient information technologies.
