Microsystems Seminar

Scalable Nanostructures for Energy Storage and Flexible Electronics

Liangbing Hu
Assistant Professor
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.

  1. 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.
  2. 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.
Liangbing Hu received his B.S. in applied physics from the University of Science and Technology of China (USTC) in 2002. He did his Ph.D. in at UCLA (with George Gruner), focusing on carbon nanotube based nanoelectronics.  In 2006, he joined Unidym Inc (www.unidym.com (link is external)) as a co-founding scientist. At Unidym, Liangbing’s role was the development of roll-to-roll printed carbon nanotube transparent electrodes and device integrations into touch screens, LCDs, flexible OLEDs and solar cells. He worked at Stanford University (with Yi Cui) from 2009-2011, where he work on various energy devices based on nanomaterials and nanostructures. Currently, he is an assistant professor at University of Maryland College Park. His research interests include nanomaterials and nanostructures, roll-to-roll nanomanufacturing, energy storage and conversion, and printed electronics, with a focus on green materials.
