Wallace C.H. Choy


Vacancies Opening

Research staff openings: – Organic/Inorganics Material and Device Physics – Material and Crystal Synthesis.


Research Interests

Research Interest: the design, physics, and mechanism of organic/inorganic optoelectronic devices; plasmonic nanostructures, nanoscale structures, and the hybrid systems with organic/inorganic materials; the multi-physical (optical, electrical, and thermal) properties and applications of the hybrid systems.

Wallace C. H. Choy received his Ph.D. Degree in Electronic Engineering from the University of Surrey, UK in 1999. He then joined National Research Council of Canada as a member of research staff to work on optical device structures of polarization-independent optical amplifiers and modulators. He joined Fujitsu in San Jose, US in 2001 to develop real-time wavelength-tunable lasers and optical transmitter modules.

He is currently a professor of Department of Electrical and Electronic Engineering, and Associate Director of the Knowledge Exchange Office of the University of Hong Kong (HKU). Dr. Choy has published over 230 internationally peer-reviewed journal papers, contributed to one book and five book chapters, as well as a number of US and China patents. Among his publications, 17 papers have been featured as cover-story articles such as Adv. Mater., Adv Energy Mater., and Chem Comm., and 33 articles have been highlighted/selected in research new/scholarly articles. Details of publication can be found in http://scholar.google.com.hk/citations?user=GEJf9dAAAAAJ. He was the recipient of different awards such as the Sir Edward Youde Memorial Fellowship, the Croucher Foundation Fellowship, and the Outstanding Achievement Award from National Research Council of Canada and HKU Research Output Prize. He has taken a sabbatical leave to visit well-recognized groups in the fields including Prof. Yang Yang, UCLA, Prof. Karl Leo, Institut fuer Angewandte Photophysik (IAPP), Technische Universitaet Dresden, Germany, Prof. Junji Kido, Yamagata University, and Prof./Sir Richard Friend, Cavendish Lab, Cambridge University, UK.

Wallace Choy is a fellow of OSA and senior member of IEEE. He is one of 2018 higher cited researchers (in the category of cross-fields). He has been recognized as Top 1% of most-cited scientists in Thomson Reuter’s Essential Science Indicators (ESI) six years in a row 2014 to 2019. He has been recognized as a prolific researcher on organic solar cells in the index (WFC in physical sciences) in Nature Index 2014 Hong Kong published by Nature.

He has served as a panel member of different funding agencies including Hong Kong Research Grant Council and Innovation and Technology Commission of Hong Kong, as well as Specialist and Programme Accreditation Committee of HK Council for Accreditation of Academic and Vocational Qualifications. He has also served as an editorial board member for the journals of various publishers such as Nature Publishing Group, and IOP, Wiley, and Elsevier, as well as a committee member in international industrial and academic conferences organized by various organizations such as IEEE, OSA, and Plastic Electronics Foundation.
