Zhu Wang graduated from School of Astronautics in Harbin Institute of Technology, China, with B.Eng. Degree in Electronic Science and Technology in 2008. After that, He studied in Department of Electronic Engineering at City University of Hong Kong, and graduated with M.Phil. Degree in 2010. He then joined Centre for Sustainable Energy Systems in College of Engineering and Computer Science, ANU, to pursue Ph.D. Degree.

Plasmonics, Nanophotonics, Solar Cells

Research Description

Plasmonic nanoparticles can trap incident sunlight, forming strongly enhanced field around the particles. This effect can be used to realize perfect light absorption in planar extremely-thin semiconductors, making it possible to fabricate high-efficiency ultra-thin solar cells with the thickness ~10 nm (1/100000 of a millimetre) using alternative earth-abundant inorganic semiconductors. This technology has the potential to significantly reduce the costs and reshape solar cells.

Research Outline

I study Plasmonic Near-Field Enhancement with aim to fabricate high-efficiency ultrathin plannar solar cells.
