Abstract

Electrospinning is the most versatile technique to design nanofiber materials with numerous applications in the fields of filtration, membranes, catalysts, reinforcement and biomedicals. Using electrospinning, we are able to design a complex structure from a rich variety of materials including polymers, metals, ceramics and composite, with the ability to control composition, morphology and secondary structure and tailor performance and functionality for specific applications. Moreover, with significant improvement in electrospinning equipment design, industrial-scale electrospinning technologies with production rate of several thousands of square meters per day are transforming advanced material research done in our labs into products serving our everyday life.

This talk will show you the power of electrospinning technology with exciting projects that address the sizable challenges in energy devices by electrospinning. The outcomes of these unique nanofibirous structures are significant improvements in electrochemical performance and durability, which bring our sustainable energy technology one step forward.
