New paper in ACS Nano

Our paper “Area-Selective Atomic Layer Deposition Patterned by Electrohydrodynamic-Jet Printing for Additive Manufacturing of Functional Materials and Devices” is published in ACS Nano. We demonstrate that E-jet printing of polymers with sub-micrometer linewidths (down to 312nm) can be used to block ALD deposition with sub-nm precision in the z-direction, representing a new additive nanomanufacturing Continue Reading »

New Paper in Advanced Materials Interfaces

Our paper “Rational Design of Transparent Nanowire Architectures with Tunable Geometries for Preventing Marine Fouling” is published in Advanced Materials Interfaces. By tuning nanowire length, spacing, and branching, we systematically study the impact of surface architectures on wettability, algae fouling, and optical transparency.  Superhydrophobic nanowire arrays completely block marine biofouling for 22 days.

New article in Journal of Power Sources Special Issue

Our paper “Efficient Fast-Charging of Lithium-ion Batteries Enabled by Laser-Patterned Three-Dimensional Graphite Anode Architectures” is published in Journal of Power Sources as a part of the Special Issue celebrating the 2019 Nobel Prize in Chemistry for Li-ion Batteries. We demonstrate 4-6C fast charging in >2Ah pouch cells, with ~90% capacity retention after >500 cycles, which Continue Reading »

New Article in JMCA

Our paper “Electro-Chemo-Mechanical Evolution of Sulfide Solid Electrolyte/Li Metal Interfaces: Operando Analysis and ALD Interlayer Effects” is published in Journal of Materials Chemistry A. We utilize a multi-modal suite of operando methods to study effects of artifical SEI layers deposited by ALD on LGPS solid electrolytes. The study highlights the critical role of mechanical Continue Reading »
