Prof. Yang Hui Ying


Low-dimensional nanomaterials have developed with unique physical and chemical properties for next generation energy storage devices. In the last few years, our research group has been focusing on exceptional low-dimensional nanomaterials and explore their applications in effective energy storage devices. One of the greatest challenges besetting the development of battery technologies is grid scale energy storage. We have developed zinc ion batteries for grid-scale energy storage applications and explore the different electrolyte to facilitate the zinc ion transportations. We design electrode materials with improved activity of electrochemical reaction and energy storage performance based on chemical engineering and transformation. We have also studied the prospects of fast prototyping and scalability for 3D printed energy storage devices for future development.
