LAB INTRODUCTION

There are many international students in our group, so students who are interested in doing research are very welcome. Details can be finalized upon discussion. Some possible directions:

  • Photocatalysts for hydrogen evolution 

  • Photocatalysts for oxygen evolution 

  • Photoelectrochemical water splitting 

  • Electrocatalysts for oxygen evolution reaction in acid or alkaline solutions 

  • Electrocatalyst for oxygen reduction reaction in acid or alkaline solutions 

  • Electrocatalysts for hydrogen evolution reaction in acid or alkaline solutions 

  • Advanced metal oxide support for electrocatalysts 

  • Cathode (e.g. carbon/sulfur composite) for lithium sulfur batteries 

  • Lithium dendrite formation and lithium metal battery 

  • Electrolyte formulations (for Lithium ion batteries / Lithium sulfur batteries) 

  • Study of organometal halide perovskites 

  • Nanomaterials for SERS applications 

  • 3D Printing materials 

In fact, due to the limited time of the placement in our lab, applicants are encouraged to contact me regarding the expectation, work plan and research interests beforehand, if possible. Please use "Google Scholar" to see our recent publications or visit the Website: https://homepage.ntust.edu.tw/WSU/ for more information.

  • Current Number of Student: more than 10 students
