Professor Lifeng Dong Published

Professor and the Emma K. and Carl R. N. Malmstrom Endowed Chair in Physics Lifeng Dong recently co-authored five scientific articles in the field of fuel cells, waveguide, biosensors, supercapacitors, and photodetectors. These articles are titled “Novel Composite Functional Photocatalytic Fuel Cell Assisted by Fenton-like Reactions", "Electrically Controllable Directional Coupler Based on Tunable Hybrid Graphene Nanoplasmonic Waveguide", "Boron-Doped Graphene Quantum Dots Modified Electrode for Electrochemistry and Electrocatalysis of Hemoglobin", "Synthesis and Supercapacitance of Co3O4 Supported on Porous Carbon Derived from Wheat Flour", and "Graphene-Based Dual-Band Independently Tunable Infrared Absorber.” The articles were published in Applied Surface Science, Optics Communications, Journal of Electroanalytical Chemistry, ECS Journal of Solid State Science and Technology, and Nanoscale, respectively.

Professor Dong currently works with his collaborators and undergraduate students to design, synthesize/fabricate, and characterize nanoscale materials and devices (including solar cells, fuel cells, supercapacitors, and lithium batteries) for energy conversion and storage as well as water purification and desalination.
