Research Interest

The research in ZHANG group mainly focuses on exotic materials and their applications including:

  1. Design, synthesis and characterization of novel organic conjugated materials as well as their applications in flexible and stretchable optoelectronic devices, both in thin films (field-effect transistors, photovoltaics, memory, OLEDs, thermoelectric, sensing, etc) and at the nanoscale.

  2. Novel electrode materials as well as new design for Microbial Fuel Cells.

  3. Design and synthesis of Novel crystalline inorganic materials for photocatalytic and thermoelectric applications

  4. Inorganic-organic upconversionnanoprobes as next generation biomarkers for biosensing, bioimaging, and NIR-controlled drug release.
