Welcome!

The Flexible Energy and Electronics Laboratory (F.E.E. Lab) at the University of Toronto was established in 2006 within the Department of Materials Science and Engineering.

Our research focuses on the electrochemical behaviour of inorganic and organic materials and their application in energy storage and in printed large area, flexible electronics. Ultimately, these efforts will complement each other to enable self-powered, flexible electronics to enrich our lives.
