The early phase of nanowire nucleation and growth was studied by our lab and published in the recent Applied Physics Letters paper.
LTL member Dr. Kwon showed a new, integrated approach for the fabrication of flexible and mechanically robust layered semiconductor devices in Advanced Functional Material (Cover)
Congratulations to our new PhD candidate Chuck!
Dr. Eunpa Kim has demonstrated stable and site selective doping in TMDCs via LACVD in Advanced Material (Back Cover)
Congratulations to Hojeong Jeon ('11) and Sangmo Koo for their publication in Nature Materials
The Laser Thermal Lab is directed by Prof. Grigoropoulos of the Mechanical Engineering Department, UC Berkeley. Current research interests are focused on laser materials interactions, nanomanufacturing and the fundamental study of microscale and nanoscale transport phenomena.
