Prof. Yang Qin from University of New Mexico, USA, was invited to deliver a presentation about 'Application of Organic Conjugated Molecular Composites and Nanostructures in Solar Cells' on May 23rd, 2019. The talk was hosted by Prof. Yingkui Yang.
Prof. Yang Qin presented his group's recent research advances in synthesis of organic functional polymers and their application in solar cells. He also answered various questions raised after the talk which was welcomed by the audience. Afterwards, he visited Key Laboratory of Catalytic Materials Science and had a seminar about energy material with the faculties in Energy Catalytic Materials team.
Prof. Yang Qin graduated from Beijing University in 2000 with a bachelor's degree in chemistry; he obtained his Ph.D. in Chemistry at Rutgers University in 2006; then he worked as a postdoctoral fellow in Chemistry at University of Minnesota from 2006 to 2009; afterwards he was a research associate at Brookhaven National Laboratory from 2009 till 2010 when he joined the Department of Chemistry & Chemical Biology at University of New Mexico as an assistant professor.
