On April 2nd, invited by Academician Gu Min, Executive Chairman of School Affairs Committee, Professor Cheng Yibing, Academician of Australian Academy of Engineering came to USST for academic exchange and paid a visit to Photonic Chips Research Institute. Wu Jianyong, Secretary of Party committee of USST and Academician Gu met Prof. Cheng Yibing.
Wu Jianyong briefed Cheng on the discipline development and social service of USST, and put forward hopes that both sides could strengthen collaboration in academic research. Gu Pointed out that Professor Cheng’s delegation built friendly partnership with Photonic Chips Research Institute. They were expected to promote the collaboration in the area of energy nano-photonics.
After talks, Cheng Yibing visited Photonic Chips Research Institute of Artificial Nano-photonic Center, and addressed a speech named “Advanced Photovoltaic Hydrogen Production Technology”, attracting teachers and students from Artificial Nano-photonic Center, School of Materials Science, College of Science here. During the report, Cheng Yibing pointed out that as a clean energy recommended by China, photovoltaic hydrogen production, with its increasing installed capacity, was the most potential to drive the development of future new energy. Cheng Yibing introduced the advanced research direction, technological channel and prospects of photovoltaic hydrogen production, and carried out further talks with the students and teachers present.
Accompanied by USST faculty and students, Cheng Yibing also visited History Museum and Hujiang International Cultural Park.
Academician Cheng Yibing is committed to the research in new solar cell materials, structure design and preparation, in particular for his major contributions to materials and preparation technology of perovskite solar cells, flexible solar cells and printing preparation of solar cells in large scale. Now he is the professor of State Key Laboratory of Advanced Technology for Materials Synthesis and Processing.
