Publications and Patents
So far, I have published 31 peer-reviewed papers (18 papers as the first author and 6 ESI highly cited papers) in international journals in the last 6 years, including Nat. Commun. (IF=12.353), Adv. Mater. (IF=19.791), Angew. Chem. Int. Ed. (IF=11.994), Nano Lett. (IF=12.712), Adv. Energy Mater. (IF=16.721), Adv. Funct. Mater. (IF=12.124), Chem. Mater. (IF=9.466), Small (IF=8.643), Appl. Catal. B: Environ. (IF=9.446). Furthermore, because of my contribution to the field of perovskite materials, I wrote a critical review article as the first author in the prestigious journal Small. According to Web of Science, my total citation is ~1100 with an h-index of 18 as. The average citation of my top five papers is over 80 times. I hold two patents and have also filed another two patents.
