Welcome to Qing Wang Group


About us...  

    Our research interest spans from the fundamental understanding of charge propagations in mesoscopic energy conversion and storage systems, to the development of new approaches for advanced electrochemical/photoelectrochemical energy conversion and storage. On the basis of redox targeting reactions of battery materials, we are currently working on a disruptively new battery technology -- redox flow X-batteries, for next generation large-scale energy storage. We have been collaborating with colleagues across the campus of NUS through NanoCore, and from other research institutions in Singapore. We also have close contact with research labs in China, Europe and the US. We welcome highly motivated students and researchers to pursue their academic career with us.
