Chuan Zhao
Fan Sun, Ph.D student
B.S., Nanjing University, 2009
Research interests:
Synthesis and physical properties of nanoparticles.

He is working on doping of CuxS Nanoparticles as solar energy harvesting materials. He is also involved in the synthesis of FePt nanoparticles for 3D electron atom tomography (in collaboration with John Miao’s group at UCLA).
Fan Sun
Xiucheng Wei, Ph.D student
B.S., Xi’an Jiaotong University, 2016
Research interests:
Chalcogenide Perovskite Semiconductors

He has worked on band gap engineering of chalcogenide perovskites such as BaZrS3. He is now working on synthesis of chalcogenide perovskite thin films.
Xiucheng Wei
Haolei Hui, Ph.D student
B.S., Xi’an Jiaotong University, 2017
Research interests:
Chalcogenide Perovskite Semiconductors

He was responsible for the synthesis of BaZrS3 and demonstrating its semiconducting properties. He is now working on different types of chalcogenide perovskites which may show multi-functional properties such as ferroelectricity and ferromagnetism.
