Professor Department of Materials Science and Engineering

The Guo group at SUSTech is interested in developing organic and polymer semiconductors with fine-tuned optoelectronic property and molecular self-assembly. Applications of these materials include optoelectronic devices and energy conversion devices. In addition, we are targeting on revealing the fundamental chemical structure-materials property-device performance correlations.
