Hanyang Ye

Graduate Student

Born and raised up in China, I received my undergraduate study in Zhejiang University (B.E. Materials Science & Engineering). I was an exchange student in Uppsala University, Sweden for one semester in 2012. During the summer of 2013, I worked in Department of Physics and Astronomy in University of Western Ontario as a summer intern, focusing on the project Nanoscale Imaging of Plasmonic Solar Cells on Transparent Layers of Graphene, supervised by Prof. Giovanni Fanchini. My undergraduate thesis focus on assembly and biofunctions of silica nanospheres based films, supervised by Prof. Wenjian Weng.

Now I am a DPhil Candidate in the AFMD Group, supervised by Dr. Moritz Riede. My current research concentrates on small molecule organic solar cells(SMOSCs). As one promising trend of organic solar cells in the future, SMOSCs are high efficient solar cells with advantages like foldable, light-weight and economic, etc.. Now I am investigating into the property, structure, function, application of SMOSCs materials.

Thanks to the sponsorship of China Scholarship Council and University of Oxford, I currently get the CSC-Oxford joint scholarship to do my DPhil study here. I am also grateful for Oxford China Scholarship Fund's kind contribution and awarding me as a COSF scholar for 2015.
