Welcome to the Sun Group

The Sun group at Temple devotes to motivating and educating students to promote nanoscience and nanotechnology.  The group focuses on functional nanomaterials ranging from materials design, synthesis development, in-situ/ex-situ characterization, property discovery, and application exploration.  Major directions include:
1. 2D materials and derived hybrid materials for (photo)electrochemical catalysis
2. Layered nanomaterials for electrochemical energy storage
3. Plasmonic nanomaterials with length scale from single-atom to hundreds of nanometers
4. Development of unconventional synthesis methods (e.g., microfluidic synthesis, microwave synthesis)
5. In-situ synchrotron techniques for real-time synthesis and device operation
