Scientific Background

I am a chemist who graduated from Central China Normal University. My research fields are about inorganic chemistry, photo-chemistry and material sciences. During my master period, I investigated the photo-catalysis properties of titanium dioxide nano-film.

Current Research Topic

I am researching on SAWs assisted photocatalysis water splitting, by employing SAWs on semiconductor hybrid chips and conducting ultrasonic SAW with titaniun dioxide to change the efficiency of water splitting reaction.


I try to find out suitable frequency and magnitude of surface acoustic waves to enhance the photocatalytic property of titanium dioxide ,and as a result make the reaction of water splitting more efficiently.
