Research overview

Zhou's research focusses on microstructures of solid state materials and non-classical crystal growth. In particular, his recent interests cover formation mechsnisms of crystal defects and their properties. Oxygen vacancies in many oxides are commonly believed to be active sites for catalytic reduction of oxugenated species. Asymmetrical oxygen vacancies coordinated with different metal cations allow us to tune the adsorption/desorption properties of the sites. Interaction of nanocrystallites are investigated in order to understand the principles of self-orientation, self-assembly and reversed crystal growth.
