Liyuan Han is a chair professor of School of Materials Science and Engineering, Shanghai Jiao Tong University. He received his Ph.D. degree from the University of Osaka Prefecture in 1988 and worked at SHARP Corporation since 1993, starting on the research of solar cells. In 2008, he moved to National Institute for Material Science (NIMS) and established a research center of next generation solar cells. He joined Shanghai Jiao Tong University in 2011. He achieved the first certified efficiency of 15% with cell area larger than 1 cm2, and the first certified module efficiency of 12.1%. He is an inventor of more than 150 patents and an author of ca 200 scientific papers on top-level journals such as Science, Nature, Nature Energy, Energy & Environmental Science, Joule and Advanced Materials in the field of next generation solar cells. His current research interests involve fundamental research in next generation solar cells such as perovskite solar cells and dye-sensitized solar cells to fabricate low-cost, large-area, highly efficient and stable solar cells for commercialization.
Topic: Efficient and stable perovskite solar cells passivated by molecules with D-p-A structure
