|Title||CityU materials scientist receives prestigious international and local awards|
|Description||One of the top scientists at City University of Hong Kong (CityU) has been recognised by international and local awards for his cutting-edge research achievements.|
Professor Andrey Rogach, Chair Professor of the Department of Materials Science and Engineering and Founding Director of the Centre for Functional Photonics, has been elected as the only recipient of the Carl Friedrich von Siemens Research Award of the Alexander von Humboldt Foundation from Hong Kong in 2018. He has also been awarded a Senior Research Fellowship by the Croucher Foundation for his pioneering work on perovskite nanocrystals-enabled devices.
Professor Rogach’s research focuses on the synthesis, assembly and optical spectroscopy of semiconductor and metal nanocrystals and their hybrid structures, as well as their use for energy-related and optoelectronic applications, including photocatalytic hydrogen generation from water, photodetectors, light emitting devices, and displays. He has been working on nanocrystals made of different kinds of materials for over 30 years, and continues and significantly extends this research avenue at CityU.
