Lecture:Semiconductor Nanowires and Nanocrystals

Lecturer:Professor  Brian A. Korgel

time:April 28  4:00~6:00 pm

place:Chemistry Building A813

host:Professor. Huai Yang

Abstract of the lecture:
       We have been working for several years to develop robust solution-based routes to the synthesis of nanocrystals and nanowires of many different semiconductors and metals. The general concept we pursue is to synthesize nanomaterials with unique size-tunable optical, electronic and optoelectronic properties and then manipulate them like building blocks into devices and structures with the potential to displace existing technologies.  This presentation will focus on the details of the wet chemical synthesis of silicon and germanium nanowires and copper-indium-gallium-selenide (CIGS) nanocrystals and their application as new materials to create fabrics, lithium ion batteries, transistors and photovoltaic devices.

Introduction of the lecturer:
      Brian A. Korgel is Cockrell School of Engineering Temple Professor #1 and Matthew Van Winkle Regents Professor of Chemical Engineering at the University of Texas at Austin. He received his PhD in chemical engineering at UCLA in 1997, and joined the faculty at UT Austin in 1998 after a one and a half year post doctoral position in the Department of Chemistry at University College Dublin in Ireland.  In 2007, he was a Senior Fulbright Fellow at the University of Alicante in Spain in the Department of Applied Physics and in 2008 was Visiting Professor in the Department of Physics at the Université Josef Fourier in France.  His research is in the field of nanomaterials chemistry and engineering, and he has published more than 165 journal publications and given over 150 international invited seminars and lectures.  He also serves as Associate Editor for the Journal of Crystal Growth and Materials Science and Engineering: R and is a member of the editorial advisory boards of the journals Chemistry of Materials and the Journal of Colloid and Interface Science.  At UT Austin, he founded the Doctoral Portfolio Program in Nanoscience and Nanotechnology and has co-founded two startup companies, Innovalight and Piñon Technologies.
