Thank you for visiting us!

Our research is focused on three main areas:

  • Synthesis and property characterization of graphene and other novel carbon materials;
  • High performance energy storage devices (supercapacitors, Li-ion batteries, etc.) based on novel carbon materials;
  • Photoelectric conversion of two-dimensional systems
