On November 27th, Prof. XIA Yaoyong from Shanghai Fudan University was invited by Prof. CHEN Liwei to visit Suzhou Institute of Nano-Tech & Nano-bionics, Chinese Academy of Sciences (SINANO). The report was co-innovation center in Suzhou Nanotechnology Nano Energy Materials Research Center lecture series.
Professor XIA Yaoyong research interests focus on electrochemical energy storage material, and gave an academic report entitled "lithium sulfur battery technology and materials". Professor XIA Yaoyong uses four approach to improve the cycling stability of lithium sulfur batteries: carbon encapsulated sulfur to reduce sulfur from the shuttle effect;the modified separator to prevent the sulfur ion shuttle to the negative;formation of a stable passivation layer on the lithium anode surface by electrolyte additives, which inhibits the deposition of sulfur ions on the anode;lithium sulfide instead of S as the cathode. Professor XIA Yongyao's excellent work and the academic report give a deep impress researchers and graduated students attended the lecture.
XIA Yongyao, engineering, Ph.D., doctoral supervisor, distinguished professor of Fudan University.
