There is a growing awareness that nanotechnology will have a profound impact on energy generation, storage, and utilization by
exploiting the significant differences of energy states and transport in nanostructures and macrostructures. Nanotechnology-
based solutions are being developed for a wide range of energy solutions such as solar cells, hydrogen generation and storage,
batteries, and fuel cells. Dr. Sun and his group are focusing on synthesis of various low-dimensional nanomaterials to address
challenges in fuel cells and Li batteries.
In this talk, Dr. Sun will report their progresses in synthesis and characterization of various nanomaterials including nanotubes,
nanowires, nanoparticles, nanofilms and their composites as well as how to use these nanomaterials to solve problems in fuel cells,
Li ion batteries and Li-Air batteries. For example, (i) Dr. Sun will present results of controllable synthesis of graphene and nitrogen-
doped graphene with their nanocomposites and their applications as anode for Li ion batteries, as cathode for Li-Air batteries and
as Pt support for low temperature for fuel cells. (ii) Dr. Sun will report results of atomic layer deposition (ALD) to fabricate various
nanomaterials with highly tunable structures and their applications as electrodes for PEM fuel cells and Li ion batteries.
Andy (Xueliang) Sun is a Professor and Canada Research Chair at University of Western Ontario, Canada. He received his Ph.D. degree at the
University of Manchester, UK, in 1999, and worked as a post-doctoral fellow in the University of British Columbia, Canada, and at the National Institut
de la Recherche Scientifique (INRS), Quebec, Canada. His research is to synthesize nanomaterials such as nanotubes, nanowires, nanoparticles
and thin films as well as exploring their applications for clean energy including fuel cells, Li-ion batteries and Li-Air batteries.
Sun is an author and co-author of over 150 refereed journals, one book and six book chapters. He holds ten US patents. He is actively collaborating
with universities, industries and government labs such as Ballard Power Systems, General Motors, Lithium Phostech Inc., and Canadian National
Defence. He received various awards such as Early Researcher Award (2006), Canada Research Chair (2007) and University Faculty Scholar
Award (2010). He is serving as an editorial board member of Journal of Material Science & Engineering and ISRN Nanomaterials.
