  Invited by the School of Material Science and Engineering, Guo Zaiping, professor of the University of Wollongong(UOW), Australia, delivered an academic report titled Hybrid Nanostructures as Electrode Materials for Alkali Metal-Ion Batteries in the afternoon of Sep. 17th at the teaching building No.5, meeting room 502-1.




  Professor Guo Zaiping introduced some research progress obtained by her research team in the field of the electrode materials of rechargeable batteries in details. First of all, inspired by the excellent performance showed by the material Na2TiSiO5 in sodium ion batteries, her team successfully produced a new kind of electrode material called Li2TiSiO5 and put it into use as the anode material of the sodium ion batteries. The material Li2TiSiO5 owns some advantages such as excellent structural stability and lower discharge potential. Besides, it could also make sure that batteries possess more stable long cycle life and higher discharge capacity. Subsequently, professor Guo Zaiping introduced how to make use of the plasma to induce the positive ion to mingle with TiO2 in a deep layer, which can effectively improve the performance of keeping sodium for anode material of the sodium ion battery. In addition to this, this research team also explored effects that lithium salt electrolyte may cause to the electrode of the potassium ion battery and use the liquid phase separation method to produce ultrathin Sb2S2 nanomaterials to improve potassium ion battery’s cycle stability. The report was easy for postgraduate to understand and they all benefited from the systematic research. After the lecture, professor Guo Zaiping conducted detailed and in-depth discussions on relevant academic issues with participating teachers and students.
