Feng Gao is professor at the Department of Physics, Chemistry, and Biology at Linköping University and member of WWSC. He is one of the Wallenberg Scholars 2024 for his research exploring organic and perovskite semiconductors for energy technologies.

“Organic semiconductors offer a wide range of properties that can increase the number of applications and functions of semiconductor-based components that in turn can promote the transformation to a more sustainable society,” says Feng Gao to liu.se.

The Wallenberg Scholars program is aiming to provide Sweden’s top researchers the freedom to focus on longterm research, with five-years grants up to 20 MSEK.  

“Our goal is to provide outstanding researchers in Sweden with unrestricted funds where they themselves choose what to research. We hope this enables daring and groundbreaking research,” says Peter Wallenberg Jr, Chair of Knut and Alice Wallenberg Foundation in a press release.
