The Fischer Lab is part of the new Saltus! group at the University of Freiburg!

"The Saltus! group researchers will develop innovative interfaces and interphases for materials that are used to harvest, convert or store energy. [...] Interfaces and interphases are essential components in solar, photoelectrolysis and fuel cells as well as batteries. The boundary layers substantially affect the lifespan and performance of these applications.

The group of Prof. Dr. Birgit Esser, Prof. Dr. Anna Fischer, Prof. Dr. Ingo Krossing and Dr. Severin Vierrath will jointly develop concepts on how interfaces and interphases can be improved in such energy applications." 

The Saltus! group is supported with 200 000€ by the Eva Mayr-Stihl Foundation.

Prof. Anna Fischer and her team will design new materials for heavyduty fuel cells!


We thank the BMBF for supporting the CORAL-HD project on heavyduty fuel cells in the frame of the "Ideenwettbewerb Wasserstoffrepublik Deutschland!

In the AK Fischer, we will develop new support materials and electrocatalysts for heavyduty fuel cell electrodes.

We will closely work together with a great team of partners directly located here in Freiburg (EES@IMTEK, Hahn-Schickard Institute, Fraunhofer ISE) as well as with our industrial partner Heraeus.

We are looking forward to the kick-off meeting!



Prof. Anna Fischer is funded by the Volkswagen Foundation!


We are very pleased to be able to establish electrochemical (scanning) transmission electron microscopy (EChem-(S)TEM) at the University of Freiburg in order to investigate operando dynamics of nanomaterials for electrochemical energy systems.
