ABSTRACT: Nano-structured and hierarchically structured materials play a vital role in electrochemical power source technologies: batteries, super capacitors and fuel cells. They are becoming increasingly important in electrochemical synthesis technologies such as electrolysis, photolysis, CO2 electro-reduction and production of value added chemicals.
ABSTRACT: Radiocesium (Cs) removal from tap waters was an emerging issue after the Fukushima Daiichi Nuclear Power Plant Disaster, during which a total of approximately 3.3×1016 Bq Cs was released to the environment. Radioactive fallout can lead to contaminated surface water and/or groundwater, eventually will enter drinking water production chain. Radioactivity in drinking water, even at low levels, can be harmful since the radiocesium can be bioaccumulated in body.
ABSTRACT: Tailor-made nanosystem refers the integration of different components/materials at nanoscale which can show multi-functional and unique properties. Rational design and fabrication of such hetero-nanostructures are vital to break the boundaries of traditional technologies. One of Dr. Jin Zhang’s research interests lies in producing magnetic and optical hetero-nanostructures which show distinguish properties, and have been applied in various devices, e.g. data storage, sensors, etc.
