3D Graphene for Clean Energies
Graphene is one of the most important electrode materials for energy devices. This talk will discuss 3D graphene materials for clean energy, including (1) new chemistries and processes of 3D graphene synthesis, (2) the relationships between structures and properties of 3D graphene materials, and (3) excellent performance of 3D graphene electrodes for solar cells, supercapacitors, batteries, and fuel cells.
Dr. Yun Hang Hu is the inaugural Charles and Carroll McArthur Endowed Chair Professor at Michigan Technological University.
