Welcome to Tan Group@Department of Electrical Engineering, City University of Hong Kong!

 

 

​Dr. Chaoliang Tan is an Assistant Professor in the Department of Electrical Engineering at City University of Hong Kong, China. His current research is focusing on design, synthesis and characterization of semiconducting materials (2D materials or thin films) for next-generation of wafer-scale electronics (transistors and circuits) and optoelectronics (infrared photodetectors and imaging sensor systems). He is also interested in other fields including synthesis and structure engineering of 2D materials, and demonstration of their various applications in catalysis, energy storage and biomedicine. He has published over 120 SCI papers with total citations over 16,900 and a H-index of 58. He has been listed as the Highly Cited Researcher (Top 1%, Clarivate Analytics) in last three years including 2020, 2019 and 2018.
