high-quality noble metal nanocrystals. Please
click the image below for more information.
research interests are currently focusing on:
Make noble metal nanostructures with desired plasmonic properties and
study their plasmonic properties;
metal/semiconductor hybrid nanostructures, study their plasmonic
properties, and explore plasmon-enhanced light harvesting and catalytic
Make porous metal oxide structures for catalysis, photocatalysis and
solar energy harvesting.
These projects are
highly interdisciplinary. We aim at fundamental
understanding both for scientific curiosity and for enabling potential
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.
