Shanshan Ding specialises in Perovskite quantum dots, solar cells

​Perovskite quantum dots (PQDs), as a nanostructured form of perovskites, has emerged as promising candidate for optoelectronic applications due to their suitable bandgap, large light absorption coefficients, long carrier diffusion lengths and high defect tolerance. Surface ligands are of utmost importance for the colloidal stability and property tuning of PQDs, while their highly dynamic binding nature not only impedes further efficiency improvement of PQDs-based solar cells but also induces intrinsic instability, highlighting the significance of elaborate surface ligand manipulation in this area. 

Shanshan Ding is a PhD candidate in Australian Institute for Bioengineering and Nanotechnology (AIBN), The University of Queensland (UQ), Australia. She got her Master degree from Nanjing University in China. After that, she joined Prof. Lianzhou Wang's group as a fully funded PhD student in 2019. Now her research interest is focusing on improving the photovoltaic performance of metal halide perovskite quantum dot solar cells.
