Electric Materials, Nanotechnology and Devices

Research from our group focuses on innovative materials and devices for energy conversion, storage and sensors based on nanotechnology and microfabrication.

Current research themes:

  1. Materials and devices in energy conversion and storage (https://www.ndsu.edu/pubweb/~qifzhang/)
  • Energy conversion includes CZTS solar cells, nanoantenna solar cells
  • Energy Storage includes solid-state electrolytes, lithium ion batteries
  1. Materials and devices in sensors (https://www.ndsu.edu/pubweb/~danlwang/)
  • Early-stage disease diagnosis and monitoring: breath acetone sensor, anti-cancer metabolite detector/tracker
  • Food safety and toxic gases detection: explosive sensors, food quality assessment
