The research interests of Dr. Shi’s group are focused on:
1. Novel two-dimensional halide perovskite materials and heterostructures: controlled synthesis and applications in photovoltaics, ferroelectric semiconductors, thermoelectrics etc.
2. One-dimensional materials (e.g. carbon nanotubes) synthesis via chemical vapor deposition, assembly, and manipulation.
3. Exploration of nanometer contact in transistor miniaturization.
Dr. Shi has published 14 research papers as the 1st author or corresponding author on Nature, Nature Communications, Advanced Materials, Chemical Society Reviews, ACS Nano etc. And he also served as the topic editors for Frontiers in Chemistry and Frontier in Energy Research.
