Research Overview  研究概况

Our research focuses on thermal transport and energy conversion at micro and nanoscale.

Our thermal transport research is focusing on developing and implement numerical simulation methods for heat conduction at different scales. Our target is to develop  fundamental understanding of heat conduction phenomena in different materials and across material interfaces. We investigate heat conduction in composite materials and porous media.

The thermal radiation research are aiming at the control of light/thermal radiation transport by structure or material design to achieve better energy conversion and management. We used to study efficient light trapping using nanowire or similar structures, which is useful for many applications such as solar cells. Now we are mainly focusing on radiative cooling applications.

The energy conversion research is targeting at enhanced energy conversion efficiency and reduced heat generation in renewable energy devices, including but not limited to photovoltaics and thermoelectrics.

We also explore heat transfer problems in other applications, including electronics cooling technology and laser manufacturing.
