Dr Kathy LENG awarded the Nation’s Excellent Young Scientists Fund

19 Sep 2023


The National Natural Science Foundation of China (NSFC), under the Ministry of Science and Technology, has honored Dr. Kathy K. Leng, an Assistant Professor in the Department of Applied Physics, with the prestigious Excellent Young Scientists Fund (Hong Kong and Macao) for the year 2023.

Her awarded research project “Molecularly Thin 2D Hybrid Perovskite and Innovative Devices” studied molecularly thin 2D hybrid perovskites, a new class of 2D materials with the characteristics of high structural flexibility and interesting optoelectronic properties. The ability to tune the responses of such materials by external stimuli enables applications in intelligent and functional devices. They also serve as new platforms for fundamental physics studies. Dr. Leng will continue her research on the large-scale growth and device applications of these materials.
