Energy is the biggest challenge of this century. People need renewable and clean energy sources to support the fast growing population. As a research group at Ga Tech, we aim to address the challenges in energy research field with our best effort. We work on energy storage and conversion with electrochemical technologies, e.g. batteries, supercapacitors and fuel cells.
- The experimental methodologies on Rational Design aided by computations and modeling (a Materials Genome approach).
- Development of advanced in situ characterization techniques
- In situ X-ray technologies utilizing synchrotron and bench top X-ray sources (diffraction, absorption and pair distribution function analysis, etc.)
- In situ TEM
- In situ solid state Nuclear Magnetic Resonance (SS-NMR)
- Electrochemical energy conversion and storage technologies:
- Synthesis and characterization of novel nanostructures and nanomaterials; Nucleation and crystal growth of crystalline materials.
