About the Science

What is electrochemistry?

Electrochemistry is the study of the relationship between chemical and electrical change. Electrochemical science has a multitude of applications, ranging from solar technology to biomedical innovations.

What is solid state science?

Solid state science deals with the relationship between atomic structure and the electrical, chemical, optical, and physical properties of solid materials. Applications include electronic and optical devices, displays, and sensors.
