Any major in science or engineering, prefer with wet lab skills but not mandatory.
This project aims at synthesis, characterization, fabrication and testing of modified graphene based electrode materials for high energy density lithium ion battery for energy storage. A low temperature hydrothermal method will be utilized for growing metal oxide nanowires on graphene surface resulting higher surface area for electrode electrolyte interaction which improves the lithium ion diffusion rate. Therefore, this new nanowire/graphene hybrid anode material could enhance the specific capacity and charge–discharge rate of lithium ion battery.
Wet lab nano mateirals synthesis, hydrothermal, centrifuging, filtering.
SEM, XRD, electrochemical testing.
