To understand the synthesis of novel materials at nano- and subnanometer-scale for applications as electrodes in high-performance lithium-ion batteries and solar cells, as well as high-efficiency photocatalysts for applications in environmental cleaning.
Synthesis of novel materials at nano- and subnanometer-scale for applications as electrodes in high-performance lithium-ion batteries and solar cells, as well as high-efficiency photocatalysts used in environmental cleaning. The work also includes fundamental studies of electrochemical, optoelectronic, mechanical, electrical, and interfacial behaviors of nanomaterials in energy conversion/storage devices. A variety of synthesis methods (atomic layer deposition, solution chemistry, sol-gel processing, and electrochemical approaches) are employed to obtain nanomaterials with well-defined structure at the molecular level, which serve as a perfect model system for fundamental understanding and optimal energy device design.
