Fusion Energy Conversion Materials and Devices

Introduction

Sustainable energy technologies are essential contributors to sustainable energy as they generally contribute to world energy security, reducing dependence on fossil fuel resources, and providing opportunities for mitigating greenhouse gases. In order for these sustainable energy technologies to be more widespread in our real life, the energy conversion efficiency should be dramatically enhanced. Fusion energy conversion materials and devices research group focuses the convergence of a variety of sustainable energy conversion devices such as solar cells, piezoelectric/thermoelectric generators for achieving highly efficient integrated energy systems for enhancing energy-conversion efficiency of unit device.

Research Topics

The ongoing research topics include syntheses of low-dimensional semiconducting/oxide/polymer nanostructures, fabrications of energy-conversion devices such as solar cells, thermoelectric, piezoelectric generators, and their convergent integration (photovoltaic + thermoelectric + piezoelectric + magnetic energy) with exceptional energy-conversion efficiency.
