CAREER Award Recipient to Explore Potential of Promising New Material

Tuesday, January 14, 2020 - 11:40 in Physics & Chemistry

Two-dimensional semiconductors, particularly those made of a class of material known as transition metal dichalcogenides (TMDCs), hold exciting potential for a range of current and future technologies, like solar cells, LED lights, and quantum computing. A recently awarded National Science Foundation Faculty Early Career Development Program (CAREER) grant will allow a chemical engineer from Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute to -- along with his team -- explore novel uses of TMDCs in an optoelectronic device, which uses light to create electricity.
