Yongli Gao researches chemical, biological and condensed matter physics, and particularly in the area of surface physics. His research involves the investigation of physical phenomena at solid surfaces and interfaces by examining their electronic and structural properties. His recent work has studied the electronic interactions and morphology of interfaces and interface formation; the structural and spectroscopic properties of nanostructures; the transient behavior of charge transfer across interfaces; interfaces in organic semiconductor devices; and ultrafast dynamics of photoexcited electrons in solids.
