Prof. JIN Song Visits FJIRSM


Prof. JIN Song from the University of Wisconsin-Madison, visited Fujian Institute of Research on the Structure of Matter (FJIRSM), Chinese Academy of Sciences (CAS) at the invitation of the CAS Key Laboratory of Design and Assembly of Functional Nanostructures and delivered a seminar report entitled “Electrocatalytic and Photoelectrochemical Water Splitting Using Highly Active Earth-Abundant Electrocatalysts” on January 8th, 2018. He carried out deep discussion with the research staff at FJIRSM.

Prof. JIN Song received his B.S. in Chemistry from Peking University in 1997, Ph.D. in 2002 from Cornell University under the direction of Prof. Francis J. DiSalvo and carried out his postdoctoral research under the direction of Prof. Charles M. Lieber at Harvard University. Dr. JIN is interested in the chemistry and physics of nanoscale materials and solid state materials. Dr. JIN developed innovative synthesis of a variety of nanomaterials including metal silicides, oxides, chalcogenides, and halide perovskites, and discovered and developed the screw dislocation-driven growth of anisotropic nanomaterials. Building on the fundamental understanding of novel physical properties, JIN advances the exploitation of (nano)materials for photovoltaic and photoelectrochemical solar energy conversion, electrocatalysis, energy storage, optoelectronics, nanospintronics, and biotechnology. The unifying theme of JIN’s energy research is the focus on earth-abundant materials. Dr. JIN has authored or co-authored over 170 publications and 6 patents. He has been recognized with a NSF CAREER Award, a Research Corporation Cottrell Scholar Award and as one of world’s top 35 innovators under the age of 35 (TR35 Award) by the MIT Technology Review Magazine, the ACS ExxonMobil Solid State Chemistry Fellowship, and the Alfred P. Sloan Research Fellowship, Research Corporation SciaLog Award for Solar Energy Conversion, U. of Wisconsin-Madison Vilas Associate Award and H. I. Romnes Faculty Fellowship, and the ACS Inorganic Nanoscience Award. He recently became a Senior Editor for ACS Energy Letters.
