Manufacturing and sensing of environmental biotoxins
In the Nann research group, we fabricate and characterise new, functional nanomaterials for the purpose of creating innovative energy storage solutions. Our focus is on luminescent, magnetic (multiferroic), dielectric, upconverting, Raman active, and nanomaterials with complex nanoarchitectures.
These nanomaterials allow for advanced energy storage and conversion systems, such as batteries (for example lithium-ion or multivalent), supercapacitors with high energy capacity and endurance, flow batteries for grid-level energy storage, and other technologies that can be used to power a future sustainable energy economy.
