Dr. Perez is starting a three-year research project supported by the National Science Foundation on August 1, 2023, on green and renewable energy involving hydrogen storage in two-dimensional graphene. His research team will investigate hydrogenating graphene using electron irradiation at atmospheric pressure. If successful, the approach may have significant benefit to hydrogen storage in vehicles. Dr. Perez and his students will be using a variety of techniques such as scanning tunneling microscopy, tagged mass spectroscopy, and Raman spectroscopy to characterize the effects of electron irradiation. The lab is recruiting high school, undergraduate, and graduate students for this project. Please contact Dr. Perez if you have an interest in working in this project.
