Lecture Topics：Like a rolling stone: Ultrafast spectroscopy of carrier dynamics in diverse materials
Speaker: University of Electronic Science and Technology of China, Zeng Peng, associate researcher
Lecture time: September 17 (Thursday) at 16:00 pm
Lecture Venue: 301, School of Energy and Power Engineering
This talk presents studies of ultrafast laser spectroscopy of semiconductors and nanostructures, aiming to advance our understanding of, and consequently control, photoinduced charge carrier dynamics to further improve the performance in practical applications.
Artificial nanostructures have drawn significant attention in applications such as optoelectronic devices, photo-catalysts, and solar cells. Compared to bulk materials, nanostructures provide unique optical properties, which more importantly can be directly and easily tailored through changing size or shapes of the structures, during their synthesis procedures. Photoinduced charge carrier dynamics in the nanostructures play an important role in the photon conversion processes. However, in contrast to the fast development of nanostructure-based devices, the mechanisms of these processes are still being experimentally unravelled. In this talk, a range of ultrafast optical spectroscopy methods have been applied to investigate the carrier dynamics in diverse materials including semiconductor quantum dots, perovskite films and nanocrystals, with a focus on the electron transfer process.
This talk will show the great ability of ultrafast optical spectroscopy to reveal photoinduced processes. Results indicate ways for rational design of nanostructure-based devices. A greater understanding in underlying physics leads to better control of the performance of these nanosystems in potential practical applications.
