To develop novel materials at nano- and subnanometer-scale for energy and environmental applications, such as in high-performance rechargeable batteries, solar cells, electrocatalysts, and photocatalysts.
The Wang research group synthesizes novel materials at nano- and subnanometer-scale for energy and environmental applications, such as high-performance rechargeable batteries, solar cells, electrocatalysts, and photocatalysts. The work also includes fundamental studies of electrochemical, optoelectronic, mechanical, electrical, and interfacial behaviors of nanomaterials in energy conversion/storage devices. A variety of synthesis methods (atomic layer deposition, solution chemistry, sol-gel processing, and electrochemical approaches) are employed to obtain nanomaterials with well-defined structure at the molecular level, which serve as a perfect model system for fundamental understanding and optimal energy device design.
