Organisation profile

The program on key materials offers material-related courses and research topics, targeting on two categories of advanced materials. The first is the semiconducting materials including the start-of-the-art technology in the wide-band gap semiconductors as well as the emergent two-dimensional materials. The second is the so-called functional materials which contain the novel materials with promising potential for the application in various fields such as the clean energy, memory, devices, catalysis, sensing, and quantum computing.

UN Sustainable Development Goals

In 2015, UN member states agreed to 17 global Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) to end poverty, protect the planet and ensure prosperity for all. Our work contributes towards the following SDG(s):

  • SDG 3 - Good Health and Well-being
  • SDG 7 - Affordable and Clean Energy
