Laboratory of Multidimensional Nanomaterials

The Kim group is pursuing researches in the area of clean energy materials with a focus on the design and synthesis of new forms of carbon and related materials for energy storage applications (batteries, supercapacitors), energy saving applications (smart windows) and environmental applications (photocatalysts). We work on the development of diverse nanoscale materials with a promising set of properties to be the key to tackling the problems facing the current materials.
