Research work

I’ve engaged in applied basic researches of organic/semiconductor functional materials, and have established the opto/electro/magneto functional thin solid films as my main research direction. A main interests have been focused on the development of a series of key technique related with various thin solid film preparation, including large area/cheap/rapid chemical vapor deposition, low temperature plasma assisted solid film coating, and in-situ composition of nano/micro multilayers, etc. Thus a distinctive system of technical equipments have been established. As one of the key organizers, I’m on-duty in the field of functional thin solid films involved in the “Engineering Research Center of the Education Ministry for the Surface and Structure Modification of Inorganic functional Materials”. Based on above, I’ve developed various opto/electro/magneto functional thin solid films including wide bandgap semiconductors of BNxP1-x, photocatalytic materials of TiO2, magneto-optical materials of BiYIG, and electromagnetic controllable energy-saving glass-coatings, etc. And have innovatively put forward the low temperature rapid growth mechanism of silicon related thin solid films, growth mechanism of large area dense nano-silicon films based on scanning nozzle CVD technique, materials designs related with the PBG structural metal/dielectric multilayers, etc. Many achievements have been published in top journals, and have accessed to the domestic and international peer recognition. In addition, as the person on-duty, I’ve set up the "Surface Modification of Inorganic Materials Technology R & D Center" with the Qiantang River Special Glass Technology Co., Ltd, and have actively promoted the research achievements into production application.
