Investigation on Energy Materials and Organic Electronics with a Surface Science Approach

Challenges associated with energy supply and global warming have raised public awareness of the need to tap alternative “green” energy sources. Substantial research effort has been directed towards efficient and cost-effective energy harvesting devices. Many studies have shown that surfaces and interfaces are of paramount importance in such devices. Here in the Energy Materials and Surface Sciences (EMSS) unit, we are making concentrated effort to investigate relevant surfaces and interfaces with advanced experimental techniques, including scanning probe microscopy, photoemission spectroscopy, and charge transport measurements. The ultimate goal is two-fold: (1) a molecular level understanding of structure-property relationship in organic and inorganic materials; and (2) creation of energy harvesting devices. see Research, Publications, and Annual Reports

Research Focus

  • Organic electronics, especially energy materials and devices like solar cells
  • Molecular level understanding of structure-property relationships in organic and inorganic materials
