Zongping Shao (Australia)

John Curtin Distinguished Professor Curtin University, distinguished professor and a doctoral supervisor with Nanjing University of Technology.


Prof. SHAO has been mainly engaged in researches on new energy materials and technology associated with solid particles, including solid oxide fuel cell, hybrid conductor oxygen permeable membrane, lithium-ion battery. So far Prof. SHAO has published more than 170 research papers on some famous scientific journals. He has submitted a total of 17 items of invention patent applications with a result of 10 authorized ones.

Key Achievements:
-Designed a high-performance cathode for the next generation of solid-oxide fuel cells. The high power output of cathodes results from the high rate of oxygen diffusion through the material. By enabling operation at reduced temperatures, cathodes result in widespread practical implementation of the technology.
