The emergence of collective phenomena in quantum materials is crucial for the future quantum technologies. The electrochemical reactions (electrosorption, electrocatalysis, intercalation) are traditionally carried out at temperatures near ambient, where the properties of the quantum materials have little contribution from the electronic correlations and spin ordering due to strong phonon scattering. In contrast, cryogenic electrochemistry offers an experimental access to the majority of magnetic and electronic transitions in solids. This field, being largely underdeveloped, can offer a lot of new insight into the low-temperature chemical phenomena and exciting opportunities for technology development.
If you are looking for an opportunity to start a new and poorly explored research direction, taking it to a new height, feel free to get in touch with us. You will be able to develop the cryogenic electrochemistry from scratch and make such low-temperature measurements possible.
