Our group has two laboratories – a synthetic laboratory, and a device fabrication and characterisation laboratory.

Synthetic Laboratory

Our synthetic laboratory equipped with typical equipment for organic synthesis, such as Schlenk line in every fumehood with central nitrogen supply, a glovebox under nitrogen, and other basic laboratory equipment like hotplates, vacumm pumps, balance, refrigerator, rotary evaporators, and ovens.

Beside these typical equipment, our lab also has some advanced equipment. In the lab we have two microwave reactor by CEM Discover, and a High Temperature Gel Permeation Chromatograph with RI detector by Agilent.

Microwave Reactor – CEM Discover

Device Fabrication and Characterisation Laboratory


Our device fabrication and characterisation laboratory has two glovebox under anhydrous nitrogen and three glovebox under anhydrous air equipped with hotplates and spincoater, UV-Ozone cleaner (Novascan, PSD Series digital UV ozone system) for device fabrication. Each nitrogen glovebox also equipped with Vacuum Deposition Chamber with a Turbomolecular Pump (Adixen Alcatel ATP400) for metal and inorganic electrode materials deposition.

For Device characterisation, our laboratory has standard equipment for J – V measurement (Keithley 2400) with Solar Simulator (Newport Oriel model 94021A), and External Quantum Efficiency (Enlitech QE-S EQE system equipped with a standard Si diode ).
