Academic Achievements

Prof. WANG Jianpu successively worked in the top industrial and academic organic electronics laboratories and investigated in depth on several key challenges on organic electronic devices. He solved the lifetime issue of OLED display and figured out the control method of the exciton spinning statistics of organic semiconductors, and he revealed the efficiency loss channel of photovoltaic devices, and he developed low-cost and low-power consumption organic memory devices. He published ~30 SCI papers in this field including Nature, Nature Communications, Physical Review Letters, Applied Physics Letters. Additionally, he holds 7 USA patents filed. One of the patents (US7443093, first author) achieves the double lifetime of OLED displays, solving the bottle-neck issue to market, which has been widely applied in OLED displays.
