Institute for Advanced Energy Materials
The materials for energy storage and conversion are particularly important for our daily life and national energy security. To develop materials for energy storage is complicated, workload massive and market orientated. Therefore, to shorten the time of developing a new material, the research mode should be shifted to Materials Genome Initiative (MGI)’s “theoretical screening → experimental validation” from the traditional style of “experience estimation → experimental validation”. Based on the MGI strategy, the energy materials will be implemented in a multi-disciplinary team with the high-throughput tools including calculation, preparation, analysis and data excavation, as well as the seamless cooperation with industry. Our research focuses on the development of advanced materials for rechargeable batteries with MGI strategy. It covers:
1) Design of new materials
2) Advanced materials synthesis
3) Chemical, physical, and electrochemical property measurements
4) Interface characterization and modification
5) Transport mechanism of ions
