Prof. Yi Cui, Stanford University, MSE / Photon / Chemistry
For more than a decade, my group has been working on a wide range of research topics related to nanomaterials design for energy, environment, and biology.
We began with the critical problems that need to be addressed in these areas and design/invent nanomaterials with the right physical and chemical properties to solve those problems.
In this talk, I will focus on examples of how nanomaterials design can impact energy conversion, storage, and water. Examples include: 1) High capacity Li metal anodes and sulfur cathodes; 2) Electrochemical tuning of catalysts; 3) Water filtration and disinfection.
