Research Interests

Dr. He’s research interest is focusing on R&D of novel photoelectric functional namomaterials and related devices that can efficiently utilize solar energy at a relatively low cost, mainly including new-concept solar cells and artificial photosynthesis. He has published more than 50 papers in peer-reviewed scientific journals (such as Nature, J. Am. Chem. Soc., Adv. Mater., Proc. Natl. Acad. Sci. USA, and Prog. Mater. Sci.), which have been cited more than 800 times.

Fabrication of photoelectric functional namomaterials and related devices via modern micro- and nano-technology;

Controllable modulation of surface & interfacial electronic and photoelectronic property;

New-concept solar cells that convert photoenergy into electrical energy;

Artificial photosynthesis that convert photoenergy into chemical energy, such as photoreduction of CO2.


Baoquan Ding is a principle investigator in the National Center for NanoScience and Technology of China (NCNST). He received his PhD in 2006 from the Department of Chemistry, New York University under supervision of Professor Nadrian Seeman. After the PhD, he joined Molecular Foundry, Lawrence Berkeley National Lab as a post-doctoral research fellow and worked with Professor Jeffrey Bokor in the nanofabrication facility. Then he became a research assistant professor at Biodesign Institute, Arizona State University and worked with Professor Hao Yan from Oct. 2009. He joined NCNST in Nov. 2010.

His research interests focused on nanostructures and devices fabrication with self-assembled biomaterials especially nucleic acids, nanoparticles combining with lithography methods and the development of applications in wide areas such as chemical or biosensor, nanophotonics, and nanoelectronics.
