Associate Prof. Jin Hou was attended the “Optics Frontier——The 7th International Conference on Information Optics and Photonics (CIOP 2015)”, which held in Nanjing from July 12-15. The conference was co-hosted by Chinese Laser Press, Nanjing University, and Nanjing University of Science and Technology, and it also gained strong support from the Chinese Optical Society, European Optical Society, Optics and Photonics Society of Singapore, and other international optical societies. Several well-known scientists including Prof. Eli Yablonovitch from UC Berkeley, Prof. Xiang Zhang from UC Berkeley and Prof. Zhiping Zhou from Peking University were invited. Prof. Eli Yablonovitch was coined the term “Photonic Crystal” and regarded as the father of Photonic Crystal, he also introduced “Yablonovitch Limit” light-trapping factor that is in worldwide use. In the poster session, Associate Prof. J. Hou’s poster entitled “Symmetric Substructure Dual Gratings for Enhancement of Light Absorption in Amorphous Silicon Film Solar Cells” attracted many experts’ attentions, including Prof. Eli Yablonovitch. Associate Prof. J. Hou and Prof. E. Yablonovitch had a deep discussion about how to develop higher efficiency solar cells. After the conference ended, the discussion between Associate Prof. J. Hou and Prof. E. Yablonovitch was later selected as one of the brilliant moments of the CIOP 2015.
