Project Summary

‚ÄčElectrochemical energy storage and conversion systems, which primarily include rechargeable batteries and supercapacitors, are among the leading technologies that have been projected to provide the solution to the complex energy storage gridlock. This project aims to develop advanced electrochemical energy storage systems with high energy density, high power density, and long-serving life for diverse applications. We are designing new protocols to prepare nanostructured materials (patented), including carbon, metal oxides and their composites, for a broad spectrum of energy storage applications.
