Nanostructured Materials for Energy Conversion and Storage
Professor Andy (Xueliang) Sun
Location: QNC 1501
Abstract: There is a growing awareness that nanotechnology will have a profound impact on energy generation, storage, and utilization by exploiting the significant differences of energy states and transport in nanostructures and macrostructures. Nanotechnologybased solutions are being developed for a wide range of energy solutions such as solar cells, hydrogen generation and storage, batteries, and fuel cells. Dr. Sun and his group are focusing on applying nanostructured materials to address challenges in fuel cells, Li batteries and metal-Air batteries. In this talk, Dr. Sun will report his progresses on how to apply various nanomaterials to solve problems in fuel cells, Li ion batteries, Li-S batteries and Na-Air batteries.
