Advanced Nanomaterials and Devices for Next Generation Energy Technologies

Guest edited by: Min Jae Ko (Hanyang University), Seigo Ito (University of Hyogo), Nam-Gyu Park (Sungkyukwan University) 
Climate change caused by fossil fuels is becoming a global concern to human beings. Now, energy is on the global agenda in terms of technology as well as politics. Taking these situations into consideration, this thematic series focuses on the advanced nanomaterials and devices for next generation energy related technologies. Papers in this thematic series introduce and review the recent advances in the emerging nanomaterials and devices for the energy harvesting, conversion and storage technologies.

  1. Two-dimensional (2D) transition metal dichalcogenides (TMDs) have stimulated the modern technology due to their unique and tunable electronic, optical, and chemical properties. Therefore, it is very important ...
