The Zhiqiang Niu Group--牛志强课题组 Research

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.
