Dong Publishes Three Articles

Lifeng Dong, the Emma K. and Carl R. N. Malmstrom Endowed Chair in Physics, has co-authored three scientific articles: "The Optical and Electronic Properties of Graphene Quantum Dots with Oxygen-containing Groups: a Density Functional Theory Study" in the Journal of Materials Chemistry C, "Synergistic Operation of Photocatalytic Degradation and Fenton Process by Magnetic Fe3O4 Loaded TiO2" in Applied Surface Science, and "Growth of Nitrogen-doped Rutile TiO2 Nanorod Arrays and their Improved Performance in All-solid-state Solar Cells" in Materials Research Express.

Professor 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.
