• We are exploring molecular electronics, catalysis, and assembly towards energy conversion and sensing applications. The ultimate goal of our highly interdisciplinary research is to design and synthesize catalytic and organic materials from the interplay of chemistry, physics, and engineering at  single-molecule scale.
  • We are also trying to development various of instruments with focus on single-molecule electrochemistry, spectroscopy and charge transport characterization towards controlling at fA and pm precision.
Laboratory of Precise Instrument and Single-Molecule Engineering (π-Lab) was established in 2015.5 by Prof. Wenjing Hong on chemical and instrumental engineering, Associate Prof. Jia Shi on chemical process control, and Assistant Prof. Yang Yang on molecular electronics and micro-fabrication, and working together with the molecular electronics team in Prof. Zhong-qun Tian’s lab. We have 10 PhD and master students from Department of Chemistry, Department of Chemical and Biochemical Engineering, and Pen-Tung Sah Institute of Micro-Nano Science and Technology, Xiamen University.
