We are working on diverse research projects with focus on nanostructured optoelectronic devices, their applications, as well as nanofabrication technologies. We are currently being supported by National Natural Science Foundation of China, Ministry of Science and Technology, Tianjin Science and Technology Commission, Tianjin University, and some industrial partners. We are collaborating with research groups, internally, at Tianjin University, and, externally, at Royal Institute of Technology (KTH), TU Delft, Huazhong University of Science and Technology, Institute of Semiconductors CAS, Nanjing University, Tsinghua University, Shanghai Jiaotong University, Southwest Jiaotong University, Zhejiang University, and some others.

Our research is mostly experiment-oriented although we also do theory and numerical simulations. We use and produce knowledge combining electrodynamics, optics, quantum mechanics, solid-state physics, superconductivity, semiconductor physics, nanofabrication, and material sciences. Therefore, students studying in our group can expose themselves in the interdisciplinary and collaborating research environment.

You can find more details about the projects that we are currently working on. If you have any questions, or, you are interested in any of them, or, if you want to establish collaborations, please contact Professor Hu.
