His research has been focused on crystal growth, nanostructured devices, transport and recombination properties, photocatalysis, electrical characterization of photovoltaic, electrochromic, and water splitting systems, making both experimental and theoretical work. Recent research activity is focused on new concepts for photovoltaic conversion and light emission (LEDs and light amplifiers) based on nanoscaled devices and semiconductor materials following two mean lines: semiconductor quantum dots and lead halide perovskites, been this last line probably the current hottest topic in the development of new optoelectronic devices. He is included in the 2016 and 2017 list of Highly Cited Researchers of the Web of Science.
I-30. Gang Li
(The Hong Kong Polytechnic University, Hong Kong, China)
Dr Gang Li obtained his BS degree in Space Physics from Wuhan University (1994), followed by M.S. and PhD in Electrical Engineering and Condensed Matter Physics from Iowa State University, U.S.A. (2003), respectively. His postdoctoral research in University of California Los Angeles (UCLA) from 2004 to 2007 was on polymer solar cells and LEDs, under Prof. Yang Yang, Dept. of materials Science and technology.From 2007 to 2011, he was the founding technical member who oversaw the printable polymer solar cell R&D in Los Angeles based Solarmer Energy Inc., during which several world records were achieved. Dr Li has a good mix of academic and industrial experience. He was a Research Professor in UCLA from 2011 to 2016, focusing on interface engineering and tandem polymer solar cell research. He joins the EIE Department of Hong Kong PolyU in August 2016. He has published ~100 peer reviewed papers on Science, Nature Materials, Nature Photonics, Chem. Reviews, Nature Reviews Materials, JACS, Advanced Materials, Physical Reviews B etc. The papers have been cited ~50,000 times according to Google Scholar. Dr. Li is on the list of Thomson Reuter/ Clarivate Analytics Highly Cited Researchers in Materials Science (2014 - 2017) and Physics (2017), with a H-index of 63
