Seminar | April 3 | 1-2 p.m. | Cory Hall, 521 Cory Hall - The Hogan Room


Felix R. Fischer, Ph.D, Assistant Professor, Department of Chemistry, Berkeley

Electrical Engineering and Computer Sciences (EECS)


Bandgap engineering has long played a vital role in technology by enabling semiconductor heterostructures to exhibit important behaviors such as resonant tunneling and enhanced solar conversion efficiency. As the dimensions of conventional electronic devices reduce further in size, however, their performance suffers due to short-channel effects and rough interfaces. Graphene-based molecular......   More >


Hot Electron-mediated Chemical and Solar Energy Conversion on Metal-Oxide Nanostructures: Nano Seminar Series

Seminar | April 3 | 2-3 p.m. | 390 Hearst Memorial Mining Building


Prof. Jeong Young Park (박정영), Korea Advanced Institute of Science & Technology (KAIST), EEWS

Berkeley Nanosciences and Nanoengineering Institute


It is known that a pulse of high kinetic energy electrons (1-3 eV) in metals can be generated after surface exposure to external energy, such as in the absorption of light or in exothermic chemical processes. These energetic electrons are not at thermal equilibrium with the metal atoms and are called “hot electrons”. The detection of hot electrons and understanding the correlation between hot......   More >
