Welcome to Dr. Liu's Research Group
We are involved in the research of advanced nanomaterials with specific application field in energy storage and conversion. Our research focuses on the basic, fundamental science of several technologies and devices that will impact our society in the future. Energy devices such as supercapacitors, batteries, solar cells, PEC etc. are some of the areas we broadly cover at the present time. In particular, we have great interest in the application of ordered nanostructure (nanowire/nanotube, etc.) arrays or films in these emerging areas.
Dr. Liu cordially invite you to share your exciting experience of the research with us.
**We plan to recruit 1-2 postgraduates every year. Please contact me if you have interest in our research.
***We have close collaborations with professors at NTU
Welcome students (Physics, Material Science, or Chemistry background) with passion and ambition in Nanoscience & Nanotechnology to join us.
