September 1st, 2021

The Carus Medal goes to KIT scientist: Dominic Bresser receives the Leopoldina award for his significant contributions to battery research

The Leopoldina, the National Academy of Sciences, honors the research of HIU’s chemist Dominic Bresser from the Karlsruhe Institute of Technology (KIT) with this year’s Carus Medal for the outstanding research work in his field. The Carus Medal honors significant scientific discoveries and research achievements by younger researchers. The award will be presented to the scientist in Halle (Saale) at a ceremonial opening of the Leopoldina annual meeting in compliance with the Corona rules on Friday, September 24, 2021.

Dominic Bresser and his research group Electrochemical Energy Storage Materials, deals with energy storage in batteries. Improving them and making them more sustainable is important for electromobility and other aspects relevant to the energy transition. The scientist researches alternative electrode materials and electrolyte systems for lithium-based batteries and related technologies. He contributed significantly to various innovations such as two new classes of anode materials and an electrolyte system based on ionic organic liquid crystals. His work helps to expand the range of storage technologies.
