Research Interests

Professor Li is interested in the investigation of growth, simulation, fabrication, and characterization of III-nitride structures for next-generation devices.

The devices of particular interest include LED, laser, solar cells, transistors, and sensors. Because of excellent properties of III-nitrides, these devices are expected to become the enabling technologies to revolutionize energy, communication, biochemical, biomedical, and data storage industries and many others.

Professor Li’s research activities are highly interdisciplinary. They involve electrical engineering, applied physics, material science, chemical engineering and other related disciplines.
