Favourite Achievement: I’m very proud to be one of the lab’s pioneers in the small bandgap CQD research that resulted in the QD Solar Inc and CQD-silicon integration projects. One of the early papers in the field is an APL paper I co-authored, “Single-step colloidal quantum dot films for infrared solar harvesting,” that paved the way for fabricating efficient small bandgap thin films.
