Dong Published Two Articles in Solar Cells

Lifeng Dong, professor and the Emma K. and Carl R. N. Malmstrom Endowed Chair in Physics, has co-authored two scientific articles in the development of low cost, solution-processed, and high performance solar cells. The first is titled “Solution-Processed Functionalized Reduced Graphene Oxide – an Efficient Stable Electron Buffer Layer for High-Performance Solar Cells” and published in Carbon. The second is titled “The Application of Heterostructured SrTiO3-TiO2 Nanotube Arrays in Dye-Sensitized Solar Cells” and published in Journal of The Electrochemical Society.

Dong currently works with his collaborators and undergraduate students to design, synthesize/fabricate, and characterize nanoscale materials and devices — including solar cells, fuel cells, supercapacitors, and lithium batteries — for energy conversion and storage as well as water purification and desalination.
