The University of Macau (UM) today (24 May) held a talk titled ‘How to Cook New Optoelectronic Materials in the Lab’ as the Sixth UM Scholar Research Forum. Xing Guichuan, professor in UM’s Institute of Applied Physics and Materials Engineering, was the keynote speaker. Combing both online and in-person elements, the talk attracted many UM faculty members, students, as well as teachers and students from local secondary schools.
During the talk, Prof Xing discussed the new metal-halide perovskite light-emitting materials, as well as devices that can be ‘cooked’ with a low-temperature solution method and the physical theories behind these developments. A PhD graduate from the National University of Singapore in 2011, Prof Xing joined UM in 2016 and is one of the pioneers in the applications of new perovskite light-emitting materials. He has published multiple papers on new perovskite materials in Nature Energy and Nature Communications, with a citation frequency of over 20,000.
