Prof. Yury Gogotsi and Drexel students participate in the International Workshop on Energy, Environment, Water, and Sustainability (EEWS 2017) at KAIST on August 3, 2017. Prof. Gogotsi’s talk was titled, “2D Metallic Carbides and Nitrides (MXenes) and Advancement of Technology.“ View the full meeting program here.
Can you imagine fully charging your cell phone in just a few seconds? Researchers in Drexel University’s College of Engineering can, and they took a big step toward making it a reality with their recent work unveiling of a new battery electrode design in the journal Nature Energy.
The team, led by Yury Gogotsi, PhD,Distinguished University and Bach professor in Drexel’s College of Engineering, in the Department of Materials Science and Engineering, created the new electrode designs from a highly conductive, two-dimensional material called MXene. Their design could make energy storage devices like batteries, viewed as the plodding tanker truck of energy storage technology, just as fast as the speedy supercapacitors that are used to provide energy in a pinch — often as a battery back-up or to provide quick bursts of energy for things like camera flashes.

Prof. Yury Gogotsi and Prof. Ekaterina Pomerantseva from Drexel’s Department of Materials Science and Engineering explore the topic of layering 2D Materials for Improved Energy Storage in a recent invited “Perspective” article in Nature Energy. Read the full press release here.
In a report recently released by the Milken Institute, an independent economic think tank, Drexel University was ranked 46th out of 225 universities across the country based on its “technology transfer,” or ability to translate its academic innovators’ research into actual technologies, products and research-driven startups. The A.J. Drexel Nanomaterials is a leader at Drexel in it’s production of technology transfer and tech commercialization to leading industrial partners.
