Introduction to main research fields

I. Semiconductor thin films and devices

In this direction, we mainly study wide band gap semiconductors and photoelectric detection devices. The ultimate goal is to prepare a photoelectric detector with low cost, simple preparation process and response in the sun blind zone. The wide band gap semiconductors of interest includes ZnO-based ternary and quaternary alloys, such as ZnOS, BeZnOS, MgZnOS, CdZnOS, BeMgZnO, etc, SnO2, and Ga2O3. The researches involve epitaxial film growth, properties characterization, device fabrication, and theoretical investigations.

We use pulsed laser deposition (PLD) method to grow the epitaxial films with various compositions under different growth conditions. Multiple techniques such as HRXRD, XPS, AFM, SEM, UV-Vis-IR spectroscopy, PL, etc, are employed to characterize the structural, compositional, morphological, and optical properties of the films. Eventually, electrodes are evaporated on the films to fabricate optoelectronic devices. The devices that are of our main interest include flexible light emitting devices such as ACEL panels and fibers based on ZnS phosphor and Ag nanowire-electrodes, and ultraviolet solar-blind photodetectors. With simple blade-coating technique, we have achieved ACEL panels, which exhibit high brightness, excellent flexibility and mechanical stability. Utilizing simple dip-coating technique, we further succeeded in producing long and flexible ACEL wires with excellent wear-ability and weave-ability demonstrating high potential for future production of functional ACEL cloths. We perform the first-principles calculations based on density functional theory (DFT) to analyze the structural, electronic, and thermodynamic properties of isovalent anion and cation substituted ZnO-based ternary alloys as well as the anion and cation co-substituted ZnO-based quaternary alloys, complementing and guiding our experimental work.

II. Surface physics and chemistry of oxides

In this field we have mainly studied the oxidation of single-crystal transition metals surfaces, the clean and water-adsorbed TiO2 anatase (101) and rutile (011)-(2x1) surfaces by UHV surface analysis techniques like STM, LEED, XPS, AES, TPD, etc.

Future work to be done includes the growth and characterization of high-quality VO2 epitaxial films, water adsorption on ZnO (11-20) and (10-10) surfaces, methanol adsorption on TiO2 rutile (110), anatase (101), and (001) surfaces.

TiO2: We have studied with STM the atomic structures of pristine and reduced anatase TiO2 (101) surfaces and water adsorption on these surfaces, which establishes the foundation for understanding the microscopic mechanism and photocatalytic decomposition of water on the surface of TiO2 at molecular level. We have found that a reduced anatase (101) crystal shows isolated as well as ordered intrinsic subsurface defects in STM, consistent with density functional theory (DFT) calculations which predict that O vacancies at subsurface and bulk sites are significantly more stable than on the surface.

  • Yunbin He, Olga Dulub, Hongzhi Cheng, Annabella Selloni, and Ulrike Diebold*, Evidence for the Predominance of Subsurface Defects on Reduced Anatase TiO2 (101), Phys. Rev. Lett. 102 (2009) 106105.

We have reported that the electronic changes that are imparted by such an adsorbed water monomer to the anatase (101) surface lead to repulsive/attractive intermolecular interactions along/across rows. The resulting changes in the binding energy and the dynamical behavior of adsorbed water explain the experimentally observed tendency for the ordering of molecules on anatase (101).

VO2: One of our future work will focus on a comprehensive study of the relationship between metal-insulator transition (MIT) and structural phase transition (SPT) of atomically smooth VO2 (110) thick film. In this work, we have already develop a post-annealing process to successfully obtain the atomically smooth VO2 (110) film on single-crystal TiO2 (110) substrate, which is confirmed by the in situ scanning tunneling microscopy (STM).

ZnO: At present, one of the work focuses on investigating the microscopic mechanism of the adsorption of water molecules on the non-polar ZnO (11-20) surfaces at molecular level. In this work, we have already found that the non-polar ZnO (11-20) surface is quite active in adsorbing water molecules at room temperature, which is confirmed by the in-situ STM, XPS and theoretical calculations.

III. Nanomaterials and Nanotechnology

Nanomaterials have attracted extensive interests for three decades due to their novel properties on electronics, photonics, catalysis, optical sensing, biomedical research compared with bulk materials. But there still exist huge challenges on controllable fabrication of nanoparticles, which could further tune their specific properties. Thus, in our research, we focused on studying controllable growth of metal or semiconductor nanoparticles on two dimensional materials (graphene, MOF, perovskite etc.) and their application on direct alcohol fuel cell (DAFC) and sensor devices.

Noble metal nanoparticles/graphene composites for fuel cell: We design and synthesis metal (alloy)/graphene nanocomposite as novel electrocatalyst for overcoming the main problems in DAFC such as high cost, poor poison resistance and so on. The high electrocatalytic activity of metal nanoparticles (Au, Pt, Pd and their alloy) could be combined with excellent merit of graphene such as excellent electron transfer and high specific area.

The sensor devices have exhibited superior sensitivity and linear arrangement compared with the traditional amperometric sensor by using potentiostat.


IV. Ferroelectric photovoltaic and Dielectric Energy Storage

Clean, abundant and renewable solar energy is regarded as one of the most reliable energy resources to replace traditional fossil fuels. It can be harvested by conversion into electric energy with photovoltaic (PV) effects. In conventional semiconductor PV devices based on p-n junction or Schottky junction, the photogenerated electron-hole pairs are separated by the built-in potential that exists only in the space-charge region inside the p-n junction or Schottky junction. As a result, the Voc is always limited to below the band gap of the semiconductor materials. However, for ferroelectric PV effects, the photogenerated electron-hole pairs can be separated by the internal electric ?eld arising from the remnant polarization of the ferroelectrics, and thus, the Voc is not limited by the band gap of the ferroelectric material. Besides, the internal electric ?eld throughout the bulk region in ferroelectric is also very helpful for the separation of electron-hole pairs. All these provide a great potential for developing photovoltaic devices with high conversion efficiencies. However, FPV devices have by far remained an academic interest rather than having practical applications because of their very low Isc in the order of nA/cm2 ~ μA/cm2. The low Isc is attributed primarily to the wide band gap characteristic of ferroelectric materials. In our work, we plan to develop ferroelectric materials with narrow band-gap and large remnant polarization and introduce it into the P-N junction of semiconductor solar cells to build thin-film solar cells involving ferroelectric depolarization and P-N junction built-in electric fields.

In recent years, fossil energy crisis,climate change and air pollution have inspired massive efforts to explore clean and renewable energy resources, such as solar, water, wind and thermal energy. This leads to a high demand for energy storage systems, such as batteries, fuel cells, electrochemical capacitors, and dielectric-based capacitors. Among these energy storage technologies, dielectric capacitors possess advantages such as high power density, fast charge/discharge rate (<1 ?s), long lifetime and low cost. Thus, they may be used in hybrid electric vehicles, medical devices, mobile electronic devices and electrical weapon systems. However, these potential applications are severely limited by the low energy density of dielectric capacitors which is at least by an order of magnitude lower than those of batteries, fuel cells and electrochemical capacitors. Antiferroelectric materials typically exhibit large recoverable energy density because of their zero remnant polarization in idea case and high saturation polarization, as shown in the figure, and thus is a good choice for preparing capacitors with superior properties. In our work, we plan to develop lead-free antiferroelectric ceramic/thin film/thick film and ceramic-polymer based capacitors with high discharge energy density and energy conversion efficiency.
