Welcome to Prof. Yang Yang's Laboratory.
We are working on solution processable thin film electronic devices.
The devices we study include photovoltaic cells, digital memory units, light emitting diodes and thin film transistors. We are using various kinds of materials, including conjugate polymers, carbon based nanomaterials, as well as solution processable inorganic semiconductors, to pursue the highest performance based on a thin film made at extremely low cost.
We are recruiting Post-Doctoral reseachers with background in chemistry and device physics.
Hard-working undergrads, master and PhD students are also welcomed to apply for our group!
- We are seeking hard working MS students to join our group.
