Results in Organic Optoelectronic Technology Achieved by Tang Zheng's Research Team


Recently, the research team headed by Tang Zheng, a Distinguished Researcher at the Center for Advanced Low-Dimension Materials, DHU, has made achievements in the research of organic optoelectronic devices. The research result “A Transparent Electrode Based on Solution-Processed ZnO for Organic Optoelectronic Devices” was published in Nature Communications (Nat. Commun. 2022, 13, 4387). This is the second paper relating to organic optoelectronic devices published by Tang Zheng’s research team in Nature Communications within one year. The first author is Chen Zhi, a postgraduate at DHU, and the co-first author is Wang Jie, whose affiliation is the State Key Laboratory for Modification of Chemical Fibers and Polymer Materials (SKLFPM), the Center for Advanced Low-Dimension Materials and the College of Materials Science and Engineering, Donghua University.

Tang’s team, in collaboration with Professor Wolfgang Tress of the Zurich University of Applied Sciences, has developed a transparent electrode as an alternative to indium tin oxide (ITO) of optoelectronic devices with better performance. This has led to a breakthrough in the performance of ITO-free organic optoelectronic devices and shed light on the industrialization of organic optoelectronic technology.
