Nanomaterials, characterized by their high specific surface area and unique band structure, play a pivotal role in revolutionizing energy storage technologies. This initiative focuses on developing advanced metal-oxide and metal-sulfide nanomaterials, specifically tailored for cathodes in lithium, sodium, and zinc ion batteries. These nanomaterials are engineered to enhance battery performance, efficiency, and durability, addressing key energy storage challenges. By incorporating nanomaterials into battery cathodes, we can significantly improve charge storage capacity and cycling stability, which is essential for applications ranging from electric vehicles to grid storage. The nanoscale size of these materials enables faster electron and ion transport, resulting in batteries that charge quicker and have a higher energy density. Furthermore, this program, spanning a duration of 3-6 months, offers an enriching educational experience for participating students. For a monthly living stipend of NTD 12,000, students will acquire a fundamental understanding of nanotechnology and its applications in energy storage and gain valuable hands-on experience in synthesizing and characterizing these cutting-edge materials.

This approach provides students with a unique opportunity to contribute to significant advancements in sustainable energy technologies while equipping them with skills and knowledge relevant to emerging scientific and industrial challenges. Through this blend of theoretical knowledge and practical application, students will be well-prepared to contribute to and shape the future of energy storage technology. This initiative not only advances the field of nanomaterials but also nurtures the next generation of scientists and engineers who will continue to drive innovation in this critical area, making it a worthwhile investment in their future and the future of sustainable energy.
