We focus on the basic, fundamental questions that need to be answered to achieve a breakthrough
What is the value of research if not to make things better? At the Transport in Permeable Media (TPM) group, it is in our DNA to take inspiration for our activities from societal issues and applications. From this starting point, we focus on the basic, fundamental physics questions that need to be answered to achieve a breakthrough in application. For instance, energy storage can be achieved with crystalline materials that incorporate water into their crystal lattice. More sustainable permeable materials, as used for example in the steel and construction industry, can be made through a better understanding of aggressive phase changes such as boiling and crystallization in submicron pores. This is what we call basic use-inspired research.
Following from our focus on basic use-inspired research, the group fosters long-term cooperation with TNO, DSM, Océ, Caldic, NXP and Philips.
