Current research activities:

Hybrid perovskite solar cells and perovskite LEDs: Hybrid perovskites, which can be easily processed from solutions, have emerged as the most promising materials for low-cost and high-efficiency solar cells. The power conversion efficiency of perovskite solar cells have soared from a few percent to over 20% within a few years. In addition, this material also demonstrates strong electroluminescence and tunable emission energy, making it a promising candidate for efficient LEDs. We aim to improve the device performance and to understand the device physics of perovskite optoelectronics.

Organic solar cells: The power conversion efficiency of organic solar cells, made from a blend of donor and acceptor materials, has increased from around 1% to over 10% in the past two decades. In spite of the great success in device efficiency, many fundamental issues concerning basic operational mechanisms of these devices remain unknown or controversial. By using a range of electrical and optical techniques, we aim to understand charge generation and recombination mechanisms in organic solar cells.
