• Cool coatings with high near infrared transmittance for coil coated aluminium 

      Kolås, Tore; Røyset, Arne Karstein; Grandcolas, Mathieu; ten Cate, Mattijs; Lacau, Anica (Journal article; Peer reviewed, 2019)
      The temperature of a surface that is exposed to sunlight is influenced by the solar reflectance and the infrared emittance of the surface. A coating that reduces the surface temperature is often referred to as a cool ...
    • Earth-Abundant Electrocatalysts in Proton Exchange Membrane Electrolyzers 

      Sun, Xinwei; Xu, Kaiqi; Fleischer, Christian; Liu, Xin; Grandcolas, Mathieu; Strandbakke, Ragnar; Bjørheim, Tor Svendsen; Norby, Truls Eivind; Chatzitakis, Athanasios Eleftherios (Journal article; Peer reviewed, 2018)
      In order to adopt water electrolyzers as a main hydrogen production system, it is critical to develop inexpensive and earth-abundant catalysts. Currently, both half-reactions in water splitting depend heavily on noble metal ...
