About the University (学校简介)

Guangdong Technion – Israel Institute of Technology (GTIIT) is a satellite university of Technion – Israel Institute of Technology, locating in Shantou, China. Technion is world-renowned for its exceptional research and education. Since 2004, three faculty members in Technion received the Nobel prize, consistently ranked as a top-100 university.

About the Group (课题组简介)

The EMI-Lab, led by Professor Chuan-Fu Lin, focuses on the development and synthesis of novel materials for next-generation energy storage and conversion systems, and advanced manufacturing. Prof. Lin has interacted with international research teams in the past few years to provide solutions for the emerging needs of industrial partners and scientific society.  Prof. Lin was a research faculty at the Department of Materials Science and Engineering, University of Maryland from 2017-2019, and is currently an Adjunct Professor and Assistant Professor at the Department of Materials Science and Engineering, University of Maryland and the Catholic University of America.   Professor Lin has been published more than 30 high-impacted journal articles.  His research has successfully attracted research partnerships with research groups and large battery companies worldwide. Read his commentary on Scientific American.

Professor Lin will join GTIIT, Materials Science and Engineering program in Spring 2021. His group will (1) develop the next-generation energy storage for electronic devices and electric vehicles, and (2) develop multi-functional thin films through novel manufacturing technology for energy and electronics research.

Project Details

The research topics of the positions include:

(1) Solid-state electrolytes/batteries;

(2) Hybrid, flexible solid-state batteries for flexible electronics;

(3) High-energy density beyond Li-ion energy storage systems for electric-vehicle applications;
