摘要

Today, the needs for new or improved functional materials are greater than ever. In this talk, I will presentour recent research advances in designing new materials for energy and electronic applications. I will focus on three examples: (i) designing super solar-absorbing materials for thin-film solar cell applications, (ii) designing highly conductive oxide hetero-interface materials for next-generation nanoelectronics, and (iii) designing functional layered two-dimensional materials for flexible nanoelectronics and energy applications. Some newly discovered functional materials, their experimental validation, as well as the underlying structure-property relationships (or design principles) will be presented. Along with these examples, I will show an inverse materials design approachpowered by quantum-mechanical density functional theory and high-throughput first principles calculations. This approachplaces functionality first, searches for the material that has a set of physical properties optimized for such functionality, and aims to dramatically shorten the process of finding new materials.The research challenges and opportunities will also be briefly discussed.

 

个人简介:

Liping Yu is a research assistant professor at Temple University, working for the “Center for the Computational Design of Functional Layered Materials”, an Energy Frontier Research Center (EFRC) funded by DOE. He received his Ph.D. in physics with a minor in mathematics from North Carolina State University in 2009. He did his three-year (2009-2012) postdoctoral training in the EFRC “Center for Inverse Design” at National Renewable Energy Laboratory in US. After that, he was research assistant professor in the Office of Vice Chancellor for Research and the Materials Science and Engineering program at the University of Colorado Boulder (2012-2014).  He got his B.S. in Zhejiang University and M.S. degree in Shanghai Institute of Applied Physics.  Dr. Yu’s primary research interests are in theoretical and computational materials science focused on multi-physics materials design for electronic and energy applications.
