III    Academic Achievements


        We mainly focus on nanomaterials for energy applications, especially for flexible, wearable and stretchable energy conversion and storage devices. Until now, over 30 journal papers have been published, including five of Angew. Chem. Int. Ed., two of Adv. Mater., one of Nano Lett., one of ACS Nano, and so on. Because of our series of research work, we have published several review papers in high-impact journals, such as Chem. Soc. Rev., Mater. Today and Nano Today. Five Chinese patents have been authorized.
