“Less Energy Higher Performance & Efficiency
Low-Carbon & Sustainable Growth”
“Exploring Advanced Optoelectronic Devices
with Functional Quantum- & Nano-structures and Materials”
Welcome to the Advanced Quantum-Nano Materials & Optoelectronics Laboratory (AQNMOL) !
AQNMOL is dedicated to exploring the potentials for the advanced optoelectronic devices and technologies that consume less energy and produce higher performance & efficiency, i.e. photovoltaic (PV) devices & light emitting diode (LEDs), etc. The advancement and development of less-energy & high-efficiency applications heavily reply on the improvement of novel quantum- and nano-structures and associated material systems. The lab focuses on the fabrication & characterization of advanced quantum- and nano-structures & related optoelectronic devices by using molecular beam epitaxy (MBE), pulsed laser deposition (PLD), atomic force microscopy (AFM), scanning electron microscopy (SEM), transmission electron microscopy (TEM), photoluminescence (PL), Raman spectroscopy, etc.

the important thing in life is not the triumph but the struggle,
the essential thing is not to have conquered but to have fought well.”
