Drexel Materials Distinguished University and Trustee Chair Professor Yury Gogotsi is the recipient of the 2016 Nano Energy Award.
Nano Energy is a multidisciplinary, rapid-publication forum of original peer-reviewed contributions on the science and engineering of nanomaterials and nanodevices used in all forms of energy harvesting, conversion, storage, utilization and policy. This award recognizes an outstanding researcher in the field of nano energy whose work
- reflects the interdisciplinarity of this field
- has contributed in an innovative and/or impactful way to solving the major energy problems facing society
Gogotsi has made a major contribution to understanding the mechanisms of capacitive energy storage, confinement and desolvation of ions in subnanometer pores of carbon materials, and development of new materials for capacitive and pseudocapacitive storage applications. He has published over 400 papers in peer-reviewed journals and his publications have been cited over 37,000 times.
The 2016 Nano Energy Award will be presented to Gogotsi during the Nano Energy and Nanosystems 2016 conference that takes place in Beijing between July 13-15.
