Dr. Markus Gnerlich has joined ISR as a postdoctoral research associate working with ISR Director Reza Ghodssi (ECE/ISR).
His research will be focused on the development of next-generation high-power supercapacitor that will be integrated in flexible microsystems. He will use the Tobacco mosaic virus (TMV) as a template for the synthesis of core/shell nanocomposite active materials together with the standard micromachining techniques to fabricate three-dimensional hierarchical electrodes with high surface area.
Gnerlich's work is supported by the Laboratory for Physical Sciences (LPS) and Nanostructures for Electrical Energy Storage Energy Frontier Research Center (NEES EFRC) at the University of Maryland.
