Modulation of Precursor Reactivity for Colloidal Synthesis of WSe2 Nanocrystals and Heterostructures: Nano Seminar Series

120 Latimer Hall
  • Prof. Alina Schimpf, UC San Diego, Chemistry and Biochemistry
Transition metal dichalcogenides (TMDs) can host a variety of phases, each with a unique electronic structure, allowing access to a compositionally and electronically diverse set of 2D materials. Among these materials, the metastable 1T′ phase of WSe2 has recently gained attention due to its potential application as a quantum spin hall insulator operable at room temperature. This metastable...

Solid State Technology and Devices Seminar: Structured Light-Matter Interactions in Engineered Photonic Media

The Hogan Room, 521 Cory Hall
  • Natalia M. Litchinitser, Professor, Duke University
We will discuss fundamental optical phenomena at the interface of singular and nonlinear optics in engineered optical media and show that the unique optical properties of optical nanostructures open unlimited prospects to “engineer” light itself.
