The objective of this area is the development of new materials for an efficient use of energy and the conservation of the environment.
DESCRIPTION: It encompasses aspects, both fundamental and applied, in the field of magnetic refrigeration at room temperature and, also, at very low temperatures. Following a multidisciplinary approach, the activity goes beyond the study of new materials and also includes the development of cooling devices. .
DESCRIPTION: Development of new materials and structures for the use of solar energy, specifically for photovoltaic solar cells.
DESCRIPTION: Study, optimization and development of new materials and devices that favor the intensification of catalytic processes of environmental and energy interest.
