Tailored Nanomaterial Electrodes for Energy Storage Applications
Luhrs, Claudia C.
MetadataShow full item record
Given the unique characteristics found in materials at the nanoscale, such as high surface areas and enlarged reactivities, their use opens a window of new properties and opportunities in the energy storage field. However, such materials need to be designed with distinct structural features and created for particular set of working conditions. Creating tailor made high energy density nanomaterials could only be achieved by following adequate generation pathways. This presentation is focused on the strategies employed by our group to engineer nanoparticulates for battery and supercapacitor electrode applications. The techniques described herein include plasma methodologies, chemical approaches and reduction-expansion synthesis. Unique metal/carbon, carbon fibers, graphene and doped graphene electrodes, along the materials characterization and results from their testing, are presented.
