Congratulations to Dr. David Ji for winning the new UVDF (University Venture Development Fund) Award in Chemistry. His research titled, “Prototype development for high-power pseudocapacitors,” won him funding for the next 12 months.
According to Dr. Ji, “The project will study the electrode materials for a device, called supercapacitor, that stores electric energy. If the project is successful, it is expected to provide a higher power at a lower cost compared to the current commercial products. The resulting technology can be used as a power source for transportation such as hybrid electric vehicles, energy storage, for example for solar or wind renewable energy, and electronics, such as digital camera and power tools.”
Please join me in congratulating Dr. Ji on his latest accomplishment!
