Noemi Leick

Postdoctoral Researcher-Physics | 303-384-6465

During her Ph.D. at the Eindhoven University of Technology in the Netherlands, Dr. Noemi (Leick) Marius’s research focused on developing and understanding the atomic layer deposition of atomically thin Pt-group metal systems, such as Ru, Pt, and Pd. Her first postdoctoral research at the Colorado School of Mines, on the other hand, had an emphasis on SiNx thin films. In 2017, Noemi joined the H2 storage group at NREL where her main area of research is synthesizing and testing novel host materials for H2 storage, using techniques such as atomic layer deposition and thermal programmed desorption, respectively.
