Dr. Dou is again recognized as a Highly Cited Researcher 2021 in Cross Field by Web of Science (Clarivate Analytics).
Yuanhao Tang joins our group as a first-year graduate student. Yuanhao receives his BS and MS in Materials Science from Zhejiang University. He will be working on halide perovskite materials and devices at Purdue. Welcome to the group!
Qixuan Hu passes his qualifier exam and now become a PhD candidate. Big congratulations! Many new exciting projects are ahead. Good luck!
Our senior postdoc fellow Dr. Yao Gao, who jointed the group in Oct 2017 and carried out amazing foundational work for the group, has decided to join Huazhong University of Science and Technology as a professor of materials science and engineering. He will be leaving the group this month. Big congratulations! Good luck with your future endeavors!
Akriti, Shuchen, and Zih-Yu’s work regarding anion diffusion in two-dimensional halide perovskite lateral heterostructures in Adv. Mater. — where Dr. Dou is featured in the “Rising Stars” inaugural issue. Another great collaboration with Savoie group. Read the story here.
Zitang (Tim)’s work on selenophene containing conjugated ligands for OSiPs in Chem. Comm. — where Dr. Dou is featured as “Emerging Investigator” special issue. Read the story here.
Aihui and Yao’s work entitled “Ligand-Driven Grain Engineering of High Mobility Two-Dimensional Perovskite Thin-Film Transistors” has been published in JACS. We demonstrate field-effect transistors of a novel 2D OSiP with hole mobility approaching 10 cm2 V–1 s–1 with ON/OFF current ratios of ∼106 and excellent stability and reproducibility. Great collaboration with Prof. M. Ashraf Alam group and many others. Congratulations! Read the story here.
The group warmly welcomes two new postdoc fellows Dr. Yoon Ho Lee and Dr. Jiaonan Sun joining us. Dr. Lee received his PhD in Chemical Engineering from POSTECH with Prof. Joon Hak Oh. He will be co-advised by Prof. Dou and Prof. Mei on perovskite solar cells. Dr. Jiaonan Sun received her PhD in Chemistry from Ohio State University with Prof. Yiying Wu. She will work on developing novel and stable OSiPs for solar cells and LEDs. Welcome to the group. Look forward to working together!
Sheng-Ning and Wenchao’s paper about understanding thermoelectric properties of lead-free 2D OSiPs [Organic Semiconductor-incorporated Perovskites] have been published in Nano Letters. Both of them are co-advised with Prof. Boudouris. Wonderful collaborations. Big congratulations!! Read the story here.
