Yin Group

Highly Cited Researchers again. Dr Yin has been awarded with Highly Cited Researchers every year since 2015.

The Materials Science and Applications group is interested in data-driven AI-assisted synthesis & understanding of nano-to-atomic materials & structures, applications development for sustainable functional devices, and rational advancement towards multi-functions integrated systems.

  1. Data-driven machine/deep-learning aided design and high throughput synthesis of customized nano-to-atomic materials with manipulating their components, morphologies, phases, facets, defects, plasmonics, ferroelectrics and strain, etc.
  2. Understanding of the correlation between above structures, behavior patterns (e.g. photon absorption, exciton generation, charge separation & transport, ion diffusion, gas/liquid/solid phase interface behaviors, photo/electro/photoelectro-activity, and plasmon/exciton/polariton interaction, etc.) and functional performance.
  3. Local surface activity identification by real-time visualisable high spatial/temporal resolution techniques (microscopies/spectroscopies).
  4. Rational development from low-dimensional structures to functional devices for energy conversion&storage, body-wearable health prediction&diagnosis and (opto)electronics, with further integration towards advanced multi-functional systems.

About the Battery Storage and Grid Integration Program

Established in April 2018 the Battery Storage and Grid Integration Program (BSGIP) undertakes socio-techno-economic research, development and demonstration activities that support the global energy transition and help achieve economy-wide decarbonisation.Work within the program encompasses detailed disciplinary work on components of the global energy system and on how we integrate these components together to support energy transition and decarbonisation. Staff within the Program have broad expertise that includes engineering, chemistry, computer sciences, physics, economics and the social sciences. The Program places a strong focus on translational research which is defined as simultaneously advancing the body of knowledge and advancing the practice in the field.Hosted within The Australian National University by the School of Engineering (within the College of Engineering and Computer Science) and the Research School of Chemistry (within the College of Science), the Program comprises more than 50 staff and students with diverse academic, industry, gender and cultural backgrounds. The Program is funded by the ACT Government through the Renewable Energy Innovation Fund initiative, the Australian National University, and through project funding from various industry partners and grant bodies.Work led through the Research School of Chemistry focuses on materials, battery technologies and characterisation. Researchers are designing, building and characterising new battery storage devices, based on a fundamental understanding of different chemical and material behaviours. They are also exploring opportunities for battery recycling, reuse and failure analysis based on characterisation capabilities.
