InstituteofPhotoelectric Nanoscience and Nanotechnology

Nanoscience and nanotechnology are of both fundamental and technological interest.

With the decreasing sizes into nanoscale, materials will be endowed with the capability of fantastic features much beyond that of the micro/bulk counterparts. Nanoscale materials and their fabrications not only exhibit novel basic properties intrinsically associated with their size-effect and the quantum confinement effect, but also represent the critical components in advance device applications.

TheInstitute ofPhotoelectric Nanoscience and Nanotechnology (IPNN)is interested in studying the basic properties of nanoscale materials and features, with an emphasis on the mechanical, electric, especially, photoelectric properties of semiconducting nanomaterials and theirs nanoscale fabrications. Based on the fundamental study, novel devices with outstanding functions, beyond the reach of existing technology, will be explored and developed for critical applications.

Start with the synthesis of new nanomaterials and nanostructures, with an emphasis on developing new research approaches and understanding the fundamental issues of structural assembly and measurements that will enable the rational control of material composition, nano-structure, property and functionality. Discover new principles and methods to characterize basic properties of nanoscale targets to overcome the challenges of small size. Furthermore, based on nanomaterials/ nanostructures synthesis and basic properties characterization, explore novel devices with fundamentally different device architecture and novel materials, whichwill possess much better performance compared with existing technology.

IPNN focuses on basic principles of photoelectric nanoscience and targets key applications of photoelectric nanotechnology,which include, not limit to, controllable fabrication of nanostrucutures, characterization of nanomaterials, interaction between light and substance, ultra-high preciseposition sensing technology,ultra-high resolution digital image sensing,flexibledigital image sensing,high illumination intensityiight source,high resolution LED and display,nanoenergy, NEMS,devices for biomedical application, and more.
