Research profile

Peter H.L. Notten joined Philips Research in 1975 till 2010. While working at these laboratories on the electrochemistry of etching of III-V semiconductors he received his PhD from the Eindhoven University of Technology in 1989. Since then his activities have been focusing on the research of hydride-forming (electrode) materials for application in rechargeable NiMH batteries, switchable optical mirrors and gas phase storage, and Lithium-based rechargeable battery systems. Since 2000 he has been appointed as professor at the Eindhoven University of Technology where he is heading the group Energy Materials and Devices. In 2014 he has been appointed as International Adjunct Faculty at Amrita University, Coimbatore, India and at the Forschungszentrum J┼▒lich, Germany. Very recently (2018) he has been appointed as Honorary Professor at the University of Technology Sydney, Australia (UTS).

His main interest includes the development of (i) advanced battery and hydrogen storage materials, (ii) new battery technologies, (iii) modelling of energy storage materials and complete rechargeable battery (NiMH and Li-ion) systems and (iv) the development of sophisticated Battery Management Systems (BMS), enabling accurate and adaptive State-of-Charge and State-of-Health determination, to be applied in e.g. electrical vehicles in connection to the Smart Grid. He is member of the Editorial Board of Advanced Energy Materials and International Journal of Electrochemical Science. He has published as (co)author about 250 scientific papers and contributions to scientific books and owns about 30 patents.
