A/Prof ZHANG Qichun
Associate Professor
School of Materials Science & Engineering and School of Physical & Mathematical Sciences, NTU

A/Prof. Zhang Qichun holds a joint position at the School of Materials Science & Engineering and the School of Physical & Mathematical Sciences in NTU. He attained his BSc in Nanjing University, his PhD at University of California, Riverside and did his postdoc at Northwestern University, USA. The research in ZHANG group focuses on exotic materials and their applications including:

  1. Design, synthesis and characterisation of novel organic conjugated materials as well as their applications in flexible and stretchable optoelectronic devices, both in thin films (field-effect transistors, photovoltaics, memory, OLEDs, thermoelectric, sensing, etc) and at the nanoscale.
  2. Novel electrode materials as well as new design for microbial fuel cells.
  3. Design and synthesis of novel crystalline inorganic materials for photocatalytic and thermoelectric applications.
  4. Inorganic-organic upconversion nanoprobes as next generation biomarkers for biosensing, bioimaging, and NIR-controlled drug release.
