On October 29, Nanotech West Laboratory was honored to host a visit from a Chinese delegation representing Hubei Province, a sister-state to Ohio since 1979 and home of Wuhan University. The delegation of 14 included Mr. Yang Song, Deputy Party Secretary of Hubei Provincial Committee and Mr. Wang Dunsheng, Deputy Director-General of Hubei Provincial Department of Agriculture.
Dr. John Carlin, Research Scientist and IMR Member of Technical Staff, provided the distinguished group with an overview of the photovoltaics research taking place at Ohio State and the broad research capabilities of OSU’s Nanotech West Laboratory. Dr. Carlin was joined by Dr. Yun Wu, a Postdoctoral Researcher at OSU’s NSEC program, who is originally from Hubei Province.
During their visit to Ohio, the Hubei group signed a memorandum of agreement with the Ohio Department of Agriculture pledging to continue a long-standing alliance between Ohio and Hubei Province in promoting and advancing their agriculture industries.
