摘要:

There is a growing awareness that nanotechnology will have a profound impact on energy generation, storage, and utilization by exploiting the significant differences of energy states and transport in nanostructures and macrostructures. Nanotechnology-based solutions are being developed for a wide range of energy solutions such as solar cells, hydrogen generation and storage, batteries, and fuel cells. Dr. Sun and his group are focusing on synthesis of various low-dimensional nanomaterials to address challenges in fuel cells and Li batteries.

In this talk, Dr. Sun will report their progresses in synthesis and characterization of various nanomaterials including nanotubes, nanowires, nanoparticles, nanofilms and their composites as well as how to use these nanomaterials to solve problems in fuel cells, Li ion batteries and Li-Air batteries.  

 

个人简历:

Dr. Sun is a Canada Research Chair in the development nanomaterials and clean energy, and a Professor at University of Western Ontario, Canada. Specifically, his research activities are currently focused on developing various approaches to synthesize nanomaterials such as nanotubes, nanowires, nanoparticles and thin films as well as exploring their applications for clean energy including fuel cells, Li-ion batteries and Li-Air batteries.

Dr. Sun received his Ph.D degree in Materials Chemistry at the University of Manchester, UK, in 1999. After his Ph.D in UK, he served as a post-doctoral fellow in the University of British Columbia, Canada, during 1999-2001. He was a Research Associate at the National Institut de la Recherche Scientifique (INRS), Quebec, Canada, during 2001-2004. Dr. Sun joined as an Assistant Professor the University of Western Ontario in 2004. He was awarded tenure and promoted Associate Professor in 2007 and Full Professor in 2012.
