Base for Introducing Talents of Discipline to Universities
- Functional Optical Nanomaterials
(National ‘111 Project’)
‘Base for Introducing of Talents of Discipline to Universities - Functional Optical Nanomaterials’ was selected in the National 111 Project in 2016. The base is led by Professor Xiaohong Zhang, with three international academic masters: Prof. Ching W. Tang (Fellow, National Academy of Engineering, USA; Wolf Prize in Chemistry), Prof. Paul S. Weiss (Fellow, American Academy of Arts and Science), Prof. Tsun-Kong Sham (Fellow, Royal Society, Canada; Officer of the Order of Canada),12 overseas research experts, including Prof. Hongjie Dai (Fellow, National Academy of Science; Fellow, American Academy of Arts and Science, USA) and Prof. Henning Sirringhaus (Fellow, Royal Society, UK) and 14 domestic professors.
Functional optical nanomaterials with excellent optical and/or photoelectric properties are critical materials for the development of information, energy, biomedical and other applications. It is not only the major demand of national high-tech industry, but also an important research frontier of materials science. 'Base for Introducing Talents of Discipline to Universities - Functional Optical Nanomaterials' will focus on original and creative research, strive to break through in the application of functional optical nanomaterials, and greatly enhance the international influence of the base. It will carry out scientific research in three areas: structure design and controllable preparation for functional optical nanomaterials, interface control and performance of functional optical nanomaterials, and the applications of functional optical nanomaterials.
