We are pleased to share that Prof. Gang Li has been elected a Fellow of the Optica for 2022 for his seminal and sustained contributions to the research and development of organic solar cells and perovskite solar cells! This distinction was awarded by the Optica, formerly known as The Optical Society (OSA), to 106 members from 24 countries, for their significant contributions to the advancement of optics and photonics through education, research, engineering, business and service. It is a distinguished honor as the number of Fellows is limited to no more than 10% of the total Optica membership and the number elected each year is limited to approximately 0.5% of the current membership total. 

Also, Prof. Gang Li has been named a Highly Cited Researcher by the Clarivate Analytics for 8 consecutive years since 2014. Prof. Li is acknowledged in the category of cross-field of the Highly Cited Researchers 2021 list recently. The Highly Cited Researchers are the most influential researchers who have published multiple papers frequently cited by their peers that rank in the top 1% of citations for field and year in the Web of Science. 

Prof. Li’s research interests are organic semiconductor, and organo-metal halide hybrid perovskite based thin-film optoelectronic devices. He has published more than 160 journal papers including the paper on printed perovskite solar cell on Nature Photonics, and a Nature Communications paper on organic polymer solar cell this year. Congratulations to Prof. Li for his achievement!
