Junxin Wang joined the group in January 2022 as a Marie Skłodowska-Curie International Fellow. Before that, he worked as a Postdoctoral Research Associate at the Department of Chemistry, the University of Oxford, from 2020 to 2021, focusing on synthesis and optical characterization of 2-dimensional layered double hydroxide nanoplatelets with Professor Dermot O’Hare. He received his PhD degree at the Department of Engineering Sciences in Uppsala University in 2019, under Professor Gunnar Niklasson’s supervision. His doctoral work relates to the optical performance of nanoparticle composites and electrochromic thin films. His MPhil project was the light upconverting and plasmonic materials guided by Professor Jianfang Wang at the Physics Department in the Chinese University of Hong Kong. He enjoys photography, travelling, singing, and swimming outside the lab.
Junxin’s research focuses on developing new materials and structures to boost the efficiency of the luminescent solar concentrators for building-integrated photovoltaics. He conducts optical simulations and experiments to characterize the efficiency of the devices fully.
