Solar Energy Harvesting

We aims to fabricate solar cells based on polymer and/or perovksite materials with high energy conversion efficiencies. We also seeks to potential applications other than convertional solar-energy applications. For instance, we prepared OPVs for biomedical applications, and low-level lighting energy harvesting for IoTs.Read More

Organic Light-Emitting Diodes

Organic Light-Emitting Diodes (OLEDs) have been widely used as flat-panel displays of smart phones and TVs. We currently foucs on their general lighting applications. Further, we also develop perovksite LEDs as they feature pure emssive color, and lost cost fabrication. Flexible OLEDs for portable electronics is also another focus. Read More

Facility

glove-box-line
We have established a state-of-the-art device manufacturing line for organic electronic devices, featuring gloveboxs, spin-coaters, and thermal coaters. Most of them are under inert gas environment and are connected together. They can provide the electronic devices excellent protection from the ambient enviroment. The equipments are also in a class 10k clearn room.
glove-box-line
We also have several thermal evaporators, which are especially designed for organic semiconductors. The other fabricate line locates in the lithography laboratory, where the samples are exposed to minimum short-wavelength blue light.
clear_room
Photolithography can be performed in a class 100 clean room. Simple chemical synthesis can be conducted in several chemical hume hoods.
