Zemin currently is a Young Researcher at Lanzhou University. Zemin’s research interests include the fundamental optoelectronic and transport characteristics of transition metal oxide semiconductors as well as the development of new photoanode and photocathodes based on abundant elements for solar fuels production through high-throughput method.
Zemin is skilled at synthesis of semiconductor films or nanostructures by using various techniques such as: reactive-sputtering, spin-coating, hydrothermal and chemical vapor deposition methods. He focuses on understanding the optoelectronic properties of semiconductors by combining theoretical and experimental methods including advanced X-ray techniques, time-resolved spectroscopies, Kelvin probe, and so on.
