Gao Research Group

Our passion lies at the interfaces between chemistry, nanotechnologies and textile engineering. We focus on two-dimensional materials' research and their integration with textile systems for smart fabric applications, such as wearable energy storage and conversion technologies and body-armor fabrics.

Wet-Spinning Process

We use wet-spinning process to prepare various fibers from 2D-crystals.

Yarn-Shaped Supercapacitors/Batteries

Upon device engineering, these fibers can be assembled into yarn-shaped supercapacitors to power up LEDs and to be woven into fabrics:

Machine Weaving in Our Lab

Mechano-Electrical Testing System

We also have established a mechano-electrical testing system to measure triboelectric output from various fabrics:
