Jia Wang lab

Research group Our group studies low-dimensional semiconductor materials.

The research interest of my group is focusing on low-dimensional semiconductor materials, including organic, inorganic and hybrid material, and their application in various energy-conversion processes including solar cells and light-emitting devices.

In the ongoing project, our particular effort is devoted to the design and development of bio-based organic functional semiconductors, which can be synthesized from low-cost naturally occurring or natural-derived raw materials, toward energy- and resource-efficient, renewable optoelectronic applications in a circular economy.

The research group includes postdoc fellows Dr. Junkai Ren and Dr. Henry Opoku.

The research is financed by Kempestiftelserna, Bertil och Britt Svenssons Stiftelse för Belysningsteknik and SIO Grafen.
