Academic Jobs:

Currently, we are focusing on the novel Nanophotonic and Optoelectronic Materials and
Devices, including quantum dots and organic-based photodetectors, solar cells, light-
emitting diodes (LEDs) and light-emitting transistors (LETs). Our ultimate goal is to design
and prepare new materials for optoelectronics in micro- and nano-scale with high
performance for information technology.
