  • Research Topic

Solid State Ionics
Our research focus on exploring and exploiting the material functionalities that are related to ions and electrons in solids. The relevant applications include energy and semiconductor devices.
Our interest lies on understanding the fundamentals of electrochemical reactions and developing electrocatalyst materials. Current topics include interfacial reactions, space charge effects, and electro-chemo-mechanics.
Semiconductor Physics
The research aims at tuning the electronic properties of ionic solids by controlling the lattice defects. Such a study is helpful to develop photodiode and memory devices that exhibit high performance and consume low energy.
