About SIEMIS

The Soochow Institute for Energy and Materials InnovationS (SIEMIS) was founded in January 2017 and is headed by its first dean, Prof. Zhongfan Liu (Academician of the Chinese Academy of Sciences). Prof Z. Liu is a world renowned scientist for carbon materials. The mission of the institute (SIEMIS) is to advance our knowledge in the science and technology of materials and clean energy as well as to educate future scientists and engineers in this field. The current research areas include carbon materials and wearable electronics, solar energy conversion and applications, and large capacity battery development.

The institute is structured into five research departments and fifteen principal investigators including one academician of the Chinese Academy of Sciences, one academician of the European Academy of Sciences (Chair professor), five national youth one thousand plan winners and two Excellent Young Scholar winners from the National Natural Science Foundation. It has forty faculty members and over two hundred graduate students.

SIEMIS also includes a Key Laboratory for Advanced Carbon Materials and Wearable Energy Technologies - Jiangsu Province, and a Key Laboratory from the Suzhou government. The institute also has a state-of-the-art characterization center for both education and research of advanced materials. The characterization center includes aberration corrected transmission electron microscopy, a dual beam scanning microscope, X-ray diffraction, an X-ray photo-emission spectrometer, Raman spectroscopy, atomic force microscopy, inductively coupled plasma optical emission spectroscopy, BET surface area analysis, UV-vis spectroscopy, Photo luminescence spectroscopy and numerous other characterization tools.

At its core, the spirit of SIEMIS is to inspire innovation in clean and environmentally friendly energy technology, and, hence, to make the world a better place.
