Yi Cui is an Associate Professor and a David Filo and Jerry Yang Faculty Scholar in the Department of Materials Science and Engineering and Department of Chemistry (courtesy) at Stanford University, and a joint faculty in SLAC National Accelerator Laboratory. He has BS from the University of Science and Technology of China (1998), Ph.D from Harvard University (2002) and was Miller Postdoctoral Fellow at the University of California, Berkeley. In 2005 he joined in Stanford as an Assistant Professor. In 2010 he was promoted to an Associate Professor with tenure. He is an Associate Editor of a top nanotechnology journal Nano Letters. He is a co-director of the Bay Area Photovoltaics Consortium, which is funded with $25M by the US Department of Energy. He has founded Amprius Inc., a company to commercialize high-energy battery technology from his research group.

He has received Bau Family Award in Inorganic Chemistry (2014), Inaugural Nano Energy Award (2014), Blavatnik National Award Finalist (2014), IUPAC Distinguished Award for Novel Materials and Their Synthesis (2013), “Scientist in Residence” from University of Duisburg-Essen (2013), Next Power Visiting Chair Professorship (2013, National Tsing Hua University), the Wilson Prize (2011), the David Filo and Jerry Yang Faculty Scholar (2010), the Sloan Research Fellowship (2010), the Global Climate and Energy Project Distinguished Lecturer (2009), KAUST Investigator Award (2008), ONR Young Investigator Award (2008), MDV Innovators Award (2007), Terman Fellowship (2005), the Technology Review World Top Young Innovator Award (2004), Miller Research Fellowship (2003), Distinguished Graduate Student Award in Nanotechnology (Foresight Institute, 2002), Gold Medal of Graduate Student Award (Material Research Society, 2001).

Two-dimensional (2D) layered materials host many interesting physical and chemical phenomena. Their nanowires, nanoplates and nanofilms represent novel candidates to host those phenomena. Here we present our study on chemistry and physics of 2D layered nanowires and other nanostructures. First, we have synthesized a range of morphologies and their heterostructures. Second, we have developed a new method of zero-valent intercalation which allows unprecedented high levels of various metal intercalants inserted into the van der Waals gaps. The resulted optical properties and electrical conductance change drastically. Third, we have fabricated single nanostructure electrical transport devices and demonstrate novel interesting electornic properties.  Lastly, we also demonstrate the interesting tunable catalytic property.
