Condensed matterHsin-Fei Meng

Research related to Physics of Organic Semiconductors is centered onconjugated polymers based on physics as well as semiconductor devices.Conjugated polymers are a kind of organic semiconductors consisting of carbon chains. Because of their unique physical properties, they are regarded as promising new material for producing LED, laser, transistor and electro-optical devices.

Hsin-Fei is devicing organic semiconductors, OLED. He is also the associate Dean of the IO.

Superconductivity and magnetism experiments concentrate on researching superconductivity and magnetism in strongly correlated electron systems. In recent years, we have made significant contributions to the world with respect to the superconductive mechanism of numerous novel superconductors, such as: MgB2, MgCNi3 and NaxCoO2. Further studies on the magnetism in the membrane of manganese oxide have also been conducted.

JY is an expert on superconductivity. He should be able to give you more details of his lab and give you a tour to his lab shortly.
