Liming Ding obtained his Ph.D. in Polymer Science from University of Science & Technology of China in 1996. After that, he spent years working in Link?ping University, University of Massachusetts at Amherst, Air Force Research Lab, Argonne National Lab. In 2008, he joined Konarka Technologies as a Senior Scientist to develop all-plastic solar cells. His previous research includes all-plastic solar cells, polymer light-emitting diodes, photoactive polymers, liquid crystalline polymers, diblock copolymers, nanopatterning, and carbon nanotubes. 

Currently, OPV Lab research focuses on all-plastic solar cells. We are developing conjugated polymers and small molecules for solar cell fabrication. We also develop new materials for effective charge carrier transport. Roll-to-Roll processing system will be built in OPV Lab. Our mission is to develop highly efficient commercially stable all-plastic solar cell modules for practical application. We are pushing the fast commercialization of all-plastic solar cells in China and the world.
