International journal of Nano Scientific Networks and Nanotechnology (IJNN) is a multidisciplinary, peer reviewed journal which includes all the major fields in nanotechnology and Nano science. Nanoscience and nanotechnology brought up an unprecedented excitement in the scientific and engineering communities, especially the last decade. It is the engineering of functional systems at the molecular scale. This covers both current work and concepts that are more advanced.  International journal of Nano Scientific Networks and Nanotechnology   publishes original research papers during a broad area of nanoscience & engineering. IJNN provides an ideal forum for presenting original reports of theoretical and experimental nanoscience and nanotechnology research. Nanotechnology is a gathering of rising innovations in which the structure of matter is controlled at the nanometer scale, the size of little quantities of molecules, to create novel materials and gadgets that have valuable and one of kind properties. IJNN is naturally multidisciplinary, and welcomes submissions across biological, physical, engineering, and computer sciences. Contributions from both academia and industry are equally encouraged. IJNN also publishes innovative techniques and instrumentation for the fabrication, characterization and testing of nano-enabled devices and technologies, as well as advanced modelling and simulation methods.




Shuming Chen

Assistant Professor

Dr. Shuming CHEN received his BS degree in optoelectronics from South China University of Technology (SCUT) in 2005. And then, due to his excellent academic record (2nd/55), he was admitted to the graduate school of Sun Yat-Sen University (SYSU) with exemption for entrance examination, where he obtained his ME degree in 2008. He then studied with Professor Hoi-Sing Kwok at Hong Kong University of Science and Technology (HKUST) and received his PhD degree in Electronic and Computer Engineering in 2012. From Sep. 2012-May 2013, he worked as postdoctoral researcher in Center for Display Research, HKUST and part time senior engineer in Sinodisplay Technology Co. Ltd. to develop active-matrix (AM) organic light-emitting displays (OLEDs).  In June 2013, he officially joined the Department of Electrical and Electronic Engineering, SUSTech as atenure-track Assistant Professor. 

His research interests include OLED, QLED, TFT and other novel (opto-)electronic devices and their application in displays. He has published over 80 SCI papers on high impact journals including Advanced Materials, Advanced Functional/Optical Materials, ACS Nano, AngewandteChemie, Nano Energy with more than 2000 citations.

Current Research

Colloidal Quantum Dot Light-Emitting Diodes (QLED) have attracted considerable interests in recent years because of their advantages of high color saturation, tunable emission color and inherent high stability, which make them promising candidates for next generation displays. We focus on developing efficient and stable QLED devices through designing novel structures, engineering critical interfaces, investigating working mechanisms, and exploring novel fabrication processes.

Topics under investigation include:

  • Device Structures. Novel device structures such as microcavity, top-emitting, tandem, inverted, transparent, flexible, white-emission, light-coupling and etc.
  • Device Physics. Including carrier injection and transport, charge balance, exciton dynamic, degradation mechanisms, interfacial physics and etc.
  • Fabrication Processes. Low-cost fabrication techniques including all-solution processing, ink-jet printing, transferring, laminating and etc.

Interested topics

  • Quantum Dot Light-Emitting Diodes
  • Organic Light-Emitting Diodes
