University of Leicester
Professor Haitao Ye is a chair in Materials Engineering at the Department of Engineering, University of Leicester with 18 years’ academic and industrial experience of research and development in diamond based nanomaterials and nanostructures for photonics, aerospace, energy and biomedical application. Prior to that, he held various faculty/research positions at Aston University (UK) and at London Centre for Nanotechnology - a joint venture between University College London and Imperial College London, following the completion of an Industrial Research Fellowship at Nippon Telegraph & Telephone Corporation (Japan). He is currently a Chartered Engineer and a member of The Gemmological Association of Great Britain (DGA). He is a winner of multiple EPSRC, EU FP7, EU H2020 and Industrial research grants. He has also worked closely with companies such as Procter & Gamble, MIBA Coatings Group, Teer Coatings Ltd, Midlands Surface Analysis, Nippon Telegraph and Telephone Corporation, National Institute for Materials Science, etc. His research work on ‘Nanodiamond for Cold Water Cleaning’ attracted a great deal of media attention internationally.
Diamond is an ultimate semiconducting material of promise due to its superior physical, chemical and electronic properties over conventional semiconductors. Diamond Electronics is a potentially disruptive technology in the medium- to long-term with specific applications in high power, high temperature and high frequency devices. This talk reviews the present status and future prospects of thin film diamond growth and diamond based electronics devices. The application of nanodiamonds for cold water cleaning and antimicrobial resistance will also be discussed. His research work on ‘Nanodiamond for Cold Water Cleaning’ demonstrated for the first time that surface functionalised nanodiamonds could improve the efficiency of removal of lipids, highlighting the potential of this process to make global energy savings and domestic washing machines much more efficient; this work has opened up a new research direction on nanoparticles additives research.
