Emerging Nanomaterial and Energy Laboratory

The Dai research group focuses on energy conversion, energy saving, and energy storage with an emphasis on photovoltaics, light-emitting diodes, photodetectors and lithium-ion batteries. Dai group research includes three aspects. (1) nanomaterial synthesis  for perovskite solar cells, LEDs, and photodetectors toward high stability and high efficiency. (2) nanosized metal oxide synthesis for lithium-ion batteries (3) high energy nanomagnets synthesis and the application in energy storage.  The  Dai  group offers research opportunities for graduate, undergraduate and visiting students, who are interested in our research. Our lab is located at JHS Room 254, Jackson State University.
