Research Area

Dr. Yu’s research fields cover nanomaterials, materials chemistry and photovoltaic devices. She has rich practical experience in the field of control synthesis of nano-micro materials and improvement of interface engineering, and has been engaged in the research of photovoltaic materials and films since 2012. She is very good at studying the growth process of nanocrystals and the relationship between crystal growth and material properties. At the same time, she have accumulated some experience and achievements in designing and preparing photovoltaic materials and devices. At present, she is focusing on synthesizing novel perovskite materials via solution methods, developing the novel interface materials and investigating the application of on photovoltaic devices.
