Prof. Xianbao Wangs Group

1. About us

The principal research interests of Prof. Xianbao Wang’s group focus on addressing the major global challenges of clean and sustainable energy and nanodevices. To successfully meet these challenges, our group brings together expertise from chemistry, physics, biology, engineering and nanomaterials.

2. Research interests

  • Carbon based nanomaterials (its preparation, functionalization and applications);

  • Solar energy conversion (solar photo-thermal conversion, solar photo-electricity conversion and solar cells);

  • Energy generation (fuel cell, Li-ions battery, and Li-S battery);

  • Nano devices (photonic crystals, thin film transistor and biosensor).

(1) Carbon based nanomaterials

undefinedA variety of carbon-based nanomaterials, including nanotube array, nanospheres and graphene have been synthesized, and the following researches involve their large scale preparation, functionalization and its applications in polymer nanocomposites.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

(2) Solar energy conversion

undefined Novel nanostructural and functional carbon-rich materials and derivatives thereof have been synthesized, and the further modification can lead to impressive their performances in solar vapor generation, solar photo electricity conversion and solar cell. These solar energy conversion strategies are green, efficient and direct approach to utilize solar energy, and suitable for a wide range of practical applications in large-scale solar steam generation, sterilization of waste, seawater desalination, and generating power.

 

 

 

 

(3) Energy generation

undefinedEnergy generation and storage technologies are vital to the efficient utilization of sustainable renewable energy sources. Fuel cell, rechargeable lithium-ion batteries and the emerging Li-S batteries are considered as three of the most promising energy storage devices. We have develop new strategies to synthesize novel nanostructured and various functional nanomaterials. Our first aim is to generate materials leading to improved performances in electrochemical applications. The second aim is to do that sustainably.

 

 

 

(4) Nano devices

Photonic crystals (PC) are optical materials with periodic nanostructures having a photonic band gap. When light falls in the photonic band gap and cannot spread in the medium, the PCs will demonstrate structural color. In our group, photonic crystal film and microparticles, including closepacked or non-close-packed structure, were prepared, and their applications in displays and sensors were researched.

 

 

 

 

 

undefinedThe organic field-effect transistors (OFET) is a field -effect transistor using an organic semiconductor in its channel. The emphasis of our research lies in the OFET materials preparation, the linked structure formation and the device physics mechanism. In addition, its wide-ranging applications, including displays, sensors, and other hybrid integration systems, were also developed.

 

 

 

3. Group members

We are a collaborative, ambitious, multi-disciplinary research team working at the forefront of new energy & device. We value creativity, attention to detail, and the safe, ethical conduct of research.
