WUHAN, China (May 14, 2021) - Wuhan Optoelectronics Forum No. 176 was held in Auditorium C111 at Wuhan National Laboratory for Optoelectronics (WNLO) on May 14. Prof. Jianhui Hou from theInstitute of Chemistry, Chinese Academy of Scienceswas invited as the speaker of the 176thForum. Prof. Yinhua Zhou from WNLO invited Prof. Hou and chaired the Forum. Prof. Dan Zhu, vice director of WNLO, awarded Prof. Hou a forum Forum medal.
Prof. Hou first introduced working process, history and challenges for obtaining high performance of organic solar cells. Then, he introduced series of materials designed by their research group toward high performance, good stability and indoor applications of organic cells. He also shared their understanding on the relation of exciton dissociation and electronegativity on the surface of the donor/acceptor materials. Excitingly, Prof. shared their most recent novel results of cells with power conversion efficiency over 20%. At the end, he discussed the future and applications of organic solar cells.
A fruitful discussion was followed by the d Prof. Hou and the audience from WNLO, School of Chemistry, etc. This Forum was simultaneously shared online. Over 2000 persons attended this talk online.
