LAB INTRODUCTION

My group mainly focuses on the combination of electrochemistry and nanostructure tailoring for developing advanced materials. The relationships among preparation, textural characteristics, and applications of advanced materials are tried to establish. 

■ Electrochemical energy storage/conversion systems We focus on developing advanced supercapacitors, metal-air batteries, rechargeable batteries, and solar cells. My group is one of the pioneers in the supercapacitor technologies. 

■ Electrochemical preparation of advanced materials Nanostructured oxides and composites are electrochemically deposited for novel applications. We also focus on the preparation, characterization of graphene, heteroatom-doped graphene, ordered AAO, and TiO2 nanotube arrays for various applications. 

■ Electrochemical photocatalysis and materials We focus on advanced oxidative processes for organic degradation and water purification. We investigate electrochemical photocatalytic processes of hydrogen evolution and CO2 reduction. 

■ Electrochemical sensors and metal/alloy electroplating We study electrochemical sensors for heavy metals and bio-molecules detection. We also investigate electroplating techniques of trivalent hard-Cr deposits, lead-free solder bumps, and iron-group alloys
