Low-dimensional hybrid materials for energy storage technologies

Lead Research Organisation: Durham University
Department Name: Physics


In this project, two dimensional materials will be combined with zero and one-dimensional solids (quantum dots and carbon nanotubes) to create appropriately structured scaffolds, optimise performance and introduce new functionality. Nanomaterials will be produced, thoroughly characterised with a spectrum of analytical techniques and incorporated into novel hierarchically structured electrodes tailored for specific applications. Electrodes will be structurally characterised and incorporated into cells for evaluation. Use of multiple materials opens possibilities of developing new functionality, such as combined supercapacitor/battery (supercapattery) behaviour.
