Microreactors - Reference electrodes




Greater Copenhagen area

The global race is on for finding better electrocatalysts for making fuels (like ethanol) directly from CO2 via electrochemistry.

Such a technology would allow de-centralized synthesis of fuel from e.g. wind power. The recently developed electrochemical microreactor is a unique tool for this sort of measurement and you’ll get to develop it even further! The task is to develop an on-chip reference electrode for use inside the electrochemical microreactor. The methodes are mostly electroplating, electrochemical benchmarking, and SEM imaging.

The work will be carried out at DTU Physics in the CINF group and is part of a large research effort in catalysis, electrocatalysis and solar fuels research.


Interest in energy storage. Experience with electrochemistry is an advantage, but not a requirement.

Technical University of Denmark

For almost two centuries DTU, Technical University of Denmark, has been dedicated to fulfilling the vision of H.C. Ørsted – the father of electromagnetism – who founded the university in 1829 to develop and create value using the natural sciences and the technical sciences to benefit society.

Today, DTU is ranked as one of the foremost technical universities in Europe, continues to set new records in the number of publications, and persistently increases and develops our partnerships with industry, and assignments accomplished by DTU’s public sector consultancy.
