Self-assembled nanostructured materials for energy storage

Research output: Contribution to journalConference article

Abstract

The role of nanostructured materials in addressing the challenges in energy has attracted wide attention. Many promising results of nanostructured materials in energy harvesting, storage and conversion have demonstrated the important role of high surface area to maximize the surface activity, and the importance of optimum dimension and architecture, controlled pore channels and alignment of the nanocrystalline phase to optimize transport of electrons, ion and other species for better performance. In my talk, I will present some works on synthesis of nanostructured materials (e.g. oriented nanostructures, self-assembled nanoporous materials, and hybrid nanostructures) with controlled crystalline phase, orientation, and spatial arrangement. I will also discuss how such controlled nanostructures can be used in energy storage and improve device performance of Li-ion batteries. Understanding the roles of nanostructure in these applications may provide insights into the design of advanced Li batteries and other unconventional approaches for energy storage.
