Jing Li Lab - Research

 

Our research interests and activities are primarily in the development of solid-state inorganic and inorganic-organic hybrid materials that are both fundamentally important and practically relevant. Our current work focuses mainly on the design, synthesis, characterization, functionalization, and optimization of three material families that possess interesting and unique properties potentially useful for clean and renewable energy applications, including but not limited to photovoltaics, solid-state lighting, thermoelectrics, gas storage, capture and separation, catalysis and chemical sensing. We employ both experimental and theoretical methods to investigate and understand the structure-property correlations in these systems, as well as the organic-inorganic interface interactions at the atomic and molecular level.
