The group is broadly interested in scientific and technical challenges in luminescent nanomaterials, thin film optoelectronics, nanoelectronics, and energy technology. Current research focuses on quantum dot based light emitting devices (QLEDs) and metal halide perovskite luminescent materials and devices.
- Ultrabright, highly efficient, inverted quantum dot light emitting devices (QLEDs) for display, lighting, sensing and photomedical applications.
- Ultrastable, highly luminescent perovskite – polymer composite films for display, lighting and other novel applications.
Some highlights of previous research
- Discovery of rectified Ag/a-Si/c-Si crossbar resistive random access memory (RRAM) effect, the origin of silicon valley based advanced RRAM startup Crossbar Inc.
- Demonstration of functional single nanowire photovoltaic, light emitting devices and electrochemical devices.
- Discovery of the universal van der Waals epitaxial (VDWE) growth of compound semiconductor nanowires on mica.
