i) Post-Li ion battery: We investigate and design electrode materials from first-principles for multivalent-ion battery, organic battery and sulphur-based battery.
ii) Nano photovoltaic: We investigate and design nanomaterials with effective charge separation via nanosizing and alloying for photoelectric conversion applications such as solar cells and solar water splitting technology.
iii) Nanowire & molecular wire devices: We investigate the electronic and electrical properties of nanowires, 2D nanomaterials and organometallic wires for nanoscaled electronics and spintronics.
We develop first-principles approach to understand the fundamental interactions between adsorbate and substrate for chemical processes such as extraction, and growth mechanisms of nanomaterials.
