Research

The general objectives of Dr. Zhou's Laboratory for Electrodics and Ionics are to develop sustainable solutions to meet ever growing energy demand, and at the same time prevent or reverse the degradation of the environment. The research interests are in the area of fundamental multiscale physics and electrochemistry of materials and interfaces for energy systems, including fuel cells, thermoelectrics, photoelectrochemistry, capacitors, and batteries; opto-electronic materials; nanocrystalline electronic ceramics; biomass; and gas separation membranes for carbon capture.
