We currently have postdoctoral positions open in
plasmonics. Please click here for more details.
research interests are currently focusing on:
Noble metal nanostructures: synthesis and plasmonic properties;
(2) Metal/semiconductor hybrid nanostructures:
properties and hot carrier generation and utilization;
Metal oxide structures: synthesis and photocatalytic properties.
These projects are
highly interdisciplinary. We aim at fundamental
understanding both for scientific curiosity and for technological
applications. We warmly welcome students who are interested in the
topics above to apply for PhD study in physics or materials science and
Congratulations to Ms Qian LI on the
successful defense for PhD degree on physics.
Welcome Ms. Ping NIU to join in our group
as a joint postdoctoral researcher with Professor Jimmy C. YU's group.
Welcome Mr. Hang Kuen YIP (physics), Mr.
Wenzheng LU (MSE) and Mr. Ximin CUI (physics) to join in our group as
