Our current research interests focus on the unconventional energy storage devices from nanocarbon-based electrode materials to device configurations. The fabrication of electrode materials is mainly centered on the assembling technologies of macroscopic nanostructured electrodes with different dimensions based on carbon nanotubes, graphene, and their composites. The configurational design of advanced energy storage devices (e.g. supercapacitors, lithium-sulfur and zinc-ion batteries ) mainly include : flexible, micro-, stretchable, compressible,transparent and fiber structures.
