Electrochemical energy storage

Published on 12 March 2020
We develop innovative synthesis methods for 1D nanostructures, in particular Si nanowires, for use in Li-ion batteries and supercapacitors. Capacity can be significantly increased (up to 100 times) by functionalizing these nanostructures with conductive polymers, redox molecules or transition metal oxides that induce pseudocapacitive properties. We are also exploring the use of graphene-derived materials and silicon-graphite composites as innovative electrode materials.
