Wang, Yun-Xiao Dr.

DECRA Research Fellow

  • Australian Institute for Innovative Materials
  • Institute for Superconducting and Electronic Materials

Research Overview


  • I established a research group from 2017. My team features elaborate material engineering for various emerging battery systems and other energy storage technologies.

    I particularly focus on developing room-temperature sodium-sulfur batteries under the support of my ARC DECRA fellowship. The research involves nanostructural design for cathode/anode, regulation of electrode electrolyte interphase, and electrolyte optimization.  Our recent research also includes sodium metal-free Na-S batteries for the sake of safety. Meanwhile, I am interested in atomic material science in range of monoatomic clusters and single atoms. Via developing general synthetic strategies, we are exploiting a large range of atomic materials as efficient catalysts for batteries and various electrochemical reactions.
