Gong Yun was a Ph.D student working on case studies of new metal-free organic dyes in dye-sensitized solar cells. He performed experimental and computational work to investigate opto-electrical properties and structures of dyes, in order to analyze the dye...TiO2 interfaces in DSSCs. This was undertaken via UV/vis spectroscopy, cyclic voltammetry, DSSC fabrication, DFT/TDDFT calculation, etc.
Yun is from Jinan, China. He joined the group from Institute of Physics-Chinese Academy of Sciences, where he obtained his M.Sci. in condensed matter physics working on dye- and quantum dots-sensitized solar cells. He obtained his Bachelor degree in applied physics from Beijing University of Aeronautics and Astronautics.
