Nanomaterials are broadly studied and used in renewable energy and sustainability-focused science and technology. And yet, a key challenge is to develop scalable and economic synthetic routes for the mass production of nanomaterials. In this talk, I will present a new pathway of using flame as a scalable reactor to synthesis binary, ternary, doped and branched metal oxide nanowires with controlled physical morphology and chemical compositions. I will also report a combined solution-flame method that combines flame synthesis with sol-gel chemistry to modify existing nanomaterials with coatings, doping, reduction and oxidation. These new flame synthesis routes exhibit the unique advantages of self-purification process, ultrafast growth rate, atmospheric and continuous operation. These flame-synthesized nanomaterials are of high quality and when they are applied as key elements in photoelectrochemical (or solar) water-splitting devices that has led to the best performance to date. Finally, I will discuss a peel-and-stick method for manufacturing flexible and light weight thin film solar cells that could enable the attachment of solar cells to virtually any surface, ranging from existing building walls and windows, car roofs, light poles, backpacks and paper to portable electronics, significantly broadening the applications of solar cells.
