Advanced Nanomaterials for Energy Storage and Conversion

Welcome!

Research in the Advanced Nanomaterials for Energy Storage and Conversion group is aimed at studying the unique structure and properties of nanomaterials used for electrochemical energy devices such as batteries, supercapacitors, fuel cells, and photovoltaics as well as other systems. Our work involves three primary areas:

  • Materials
  • Spectroscopy
  • Electrochemistry

Our group works on the synthesis, structure, and properties of materials to develop materials with improved performance. Developing structure-property relationships is a critical aspect of our research.

Research_OverviewSome of the research themes we investigate are:

  • Studying unique structures that are stabilized in nanomaterials
  • Demonstrating distinct properties of nanomaterials (electrical, electrochemical, optical, etc.)
  • Controlling surface and interfacial structure and reactivity
  • Understanding charge storage and charge transport
  • Characterizing and controlling structure in disordered systems
  • Developing materials with improved performance for electrochemical energy storage and conversion devices
