Welcome to Prof. Zhengwei Pan’s research group at the University of Georgia. Our group is interested in the discovery, synthesis, characterization and applications of novel functional materials.

Research Interests

  • Novel near-infrared persistent luminescent materials.
  • Rare-earth activated alkaline earth aluminate luminescent nanoribbons.
  • Chemical vapor deposition growth of graphene on non-metal surface and the fabrication of complex 3-D graphene network.
  • Carbon nanotube-reinforced ceramic matrix composites.
  • Zinc oxide nanostructures.
