L. Jay Guo started his academic career at the University of Michigan in 1999, and has been a full professor of Electrical Engineering and Computer Science since 2011, with dry appointments in Applied Physics, Mechanical Engineering, and Macromolecular Science and Engineering. He has > 230 refereed journal publications with over 25,000 citations. Prof. Guo’s researches include hybrid photovoltaics and photodetectors, polymer-based photonic devices and sensor applications, flexible transparent conductors, plasmonic and nanophotonics, nanoimprint-based and roll-to-roll nanomanufacturing technologies. We are interested in developing photovoltaics that are suitable for building integration or vehicle integration, especially with proper color appearance while maintaining high efficiency. We are also developing novel optical coatings that can control the transmission, reflection and absorption of electromagnetic waves in the desired frequency range for a number of applications.
