Hybrid Nanostructures for High-Performance Electrochemical Energy Storage and Conversion

     Hybrid nanostructures with high specific surface area, fast charge carrier diffusion and good electrolyte penetration were designed and fabricated for electrochemical energy storage and conversion applications. Enhancements were achieved by using the resultant hybrid nanostructures, which represents a new paradigm for the area.
