报 告 人：胡良兵 教授
报告题目：Solid State Batteries and Wood Nanotechnologies
Liangbing Hu received his B.S. in physics from the University of Science and Technology of China (USTC) in 2002, where he worked with Prof Yuheng Zhang on colossal magnetoresistance (CMR) materials for three years. He did his Ph.D. in at UCLA (with George Gruner), focusing on carbon nanotube based nanoelectronics (2002-2007). In 2006, he joined Unidym Inc (www.unidym.com) as a co-founding scientist. At Unidym, Liangbing’s role was the development of roll-to-roll printed carbon nanotube transparent electrodes and device integrations into touch screens, LCDs, flexible OLEDs and solar cells. He worked at Stanford University (with Yi Cui) from 2009-2011, where he works on various energy devices based on nanomaterials and nanostructures. Currently, he is a professor at University of Maryland College Park. His research interests include nanomaterials and nanostructures, roll-to-roll nanomanufacturing, energy storage focusing on solid-state batteries and Na ion batteries, and printed electronics. He has published over 300 research papers (including Nature, Science, Nature Materials, Nature Energy, PNAS, Joule, Science Advances, Nature Communications, JACS, Advanced Materials, etal.) and given more than 100 invited talks. His publications have received total citation of over 29,000 times, with H-index of 83. He currently serves as the Associate Editor of Energy Storage Materials. He received many awards, including: 2019 Exemplary Research Recognition (the only one in the engineering school of UMD), 2018 R&D 100 Winner, 2018 HIVE 50 Innovator, Highly Cited Researchers list by Clarivate Analytics (2016, 2017, 2018), the Nano Letters Young Investigator Lectureship (2017), Office of Naval Research Young Investigator Award (2016), ACS Division of Energy and Fuel Emerging Investigator Award (2016), 3M Non-tenured Faculty Award (2015).
