Scalable Nanostructures for Energy Storage and Flexible Electronics
Department of Materials Science and Engineering
University of Maryland
Dr. Hu will discuss his work in the past three years related to nanostructures for energy devices and flexible electronics.
- Nanoporous paper with 1D wood cellulose for solar cells, batteries and flexible electronics. I will discuss our recent results and the fundamental science of novel transparent paper with tailored optical and mechanical properties, and applications in flexible electronics, origami devices and solar cells. I will also discuss the fundamental advantages of using mesoporous, soft wood fibers for low-cost Na-ion batteries.
- 2D materials for batteries and transparent electrodes. I will discuss the manipulations of electrons, ions, photons, and phonons in scalable paper-like thin films with 2D materials. Examples will include our recent innovative work on intercalation optoelectronics on graphene (electron, ion and photon), high-performance Na-ion batteries (electrons, ion) and thermally conductive BN film.
