Prof. Feng YAN, ADoRI-IWEAR & Chair Professor of Organic Electronics, heads a research group that specializes in advanced materials, including organic semiconductors and perovskite materials.
His research includes the development of field-effect transistors and ultra-high-sensitivity biosensors, which have made significant global impacts. Yan and his team have also demonstrated that two-dimensional conjugated metal organic frameworks are excellent semiconductor materials for high-performance electrochemical transistors (ECTs). These ECTs have promising applications in flexible and wearable electronics, as well as in bioelectronics and neuromorphic devices.
In addition, Yan's team is exploring the use of perovskites as an alternative to silicon-based solar cells, and has made significant breakthroughs that improve the efficiency and stability of perovskite solar cells in an ambient atmosphere. Yan's leadership in advanced materials is a prime example of PolyU AP's scientific focus on contributing to society.
