SGL Group Presents Utz-Hellmuth Felcht Award to Hui-Ming Cheng
Using chemical vapour deposition of graphene on a nickel substrate, he produced three-dimensionally networked, electrically conductive and flexible carbon networks. This was necessary to create flexible lithium-ion batteries with a high capacity and very fast charging and discharging capabilities. The Award ceremony took place at the Annual World Conference on Carbon 2015, which was held in Dresden/DE (12–17 July). The Award, given every two years, is endowed with prize money of EUR 5000 and was being presented for the 3rd time. It recognizes exceptionally innovative scientific and technical achievements in the field of carbon and SiC-based ceramics and is named in honour of Professor Utz-Hellmuth Felcht, long-standing Chairman of the Supervisory Board of SGL Group.
