- Fellowship in 2004 at Cornell University
Prof. FONG (China Hong Kong) received Sir Edward Youde Memorial Scholarship and Croucher fellowship from Hong Kong Croucher Foundation, the best poster awards (Co-author) in both Materials Research Society and ISFOE international flexible electronic conference in 2009.
In Sept 2010, Prof. Fong joined in Dept of Electronic Engineering, Shanghai Jiao Tong University, appointed as a full professor. His major research interests involve materials and device physics, opto-electronic properties, physics of organic semiconductors and applications of new materials for optoelectronic devices and device processing, etc. Its application includes light-emitting diodes, thin-film transistors, flexible circuits, photovoltaic cells, sensors and novel photolithographic patterning technologies. These results can be directly applied in flat panel display, solid-state lighting, electronic paper, RFID, flexible electronics, touch applications, human-machine interaction devices, chemical & bio devices, etc. He has published about 40 technical papers including 29 SCI journals, which is cited more than 500 times, and has an h-index of 14. He was invited to present in technical conferences for 20 times. He was also involved in numerous research projects regarding display, lighting and other fields of optoelectronics. These projects, for example, are funded by U.S. Department of Energy, the National Science Foundation (NSF) Materials World Network project and etc. Since 2005, he has been responsible for the joint research projects with Panasonic (Matsushita Electric, Japan), Corning Inc. (USA), General Electric (USA), BOE (China) and other industrial partners. Meanwhile, he also establishes collaborations with international academic institutions including: Cornell University, Princeton University, Georgia Institute of Technology, University of Melbourne, National Chiao Tung University (Taiwan), University of Hong Kong. He has two U.S. patents granted, two U.S. patents pending, two European patents pending, and three Japanese patents pending.
