Wang, Caiyun Senior Research Fellow

Faculty Member

  • Australian Institute for Innovative Materials
  • Intelligent Polymer Research Institute

Research Overview



  • My expertise is the design and development of organic conductor based materials (i.e. conducting polymers, graphene) for energy storage applications. My current research focuses on the development of high performance stretchable/wearable or implantable batteries/supercapacitors. The highlights of this work include publications in Advanced Materials, Advanced Energy Materials and Chemistry of Materials.


     


    In 2009, we published the first report on graphene paper for battery applications in Chemistry of Materials. This work has attracted a large number of citations. Now we are developing robust porous graphene or graphene-conducting polymer composites paper.


     


    Stretchable electrodes can maintain function under an extreme condition. We designed and developed the stretchable buckle-structured polypyrrole electrodes for biocompatible Mg-air batteries (published in Advanced Materials). Now we are expanding the research field from stretchable electrodes to electrolytes
