Weize's plasmonic desorption paper accepted to JVST A!

Congratulations to Weize Hu whose paper titled "Enhanced Photodesorption from Near- and Mid-Infrared Plasmonic Nanocrystal Thin Films" was just accepted for publication in the Journal of Vacuum Science and Technology A. It was also chosen as an Editor's Pick! In this work, Weize shows that low energy infrared light coupled to surface plasmons supported by a metal oxide nanocrystal thin film can accelerate the desorption of two model molecules. 

Postdoc opening

The Filler Lab is in search of a postdoc for a new project at the intersection of semiconductor nanowires and 2-D materials. The ideal candidate would have experience in materials synthesis and characterization, and preferably be comfortable with vacuum systems. If you have an interest in such a position and are available to start in the next few months, please email your CV to Prof. Filler.

Martin Ek's review article accepted to Accounts of Chemical Research

Martin Ek's manuscript titled "Atomic-scale Choreography of Vapor-Liquid-Solid Nanowire Growth" was accepted to Accounts of Chemical Research. He reviews our state-of-the-art understanding of the atomic-scale thermodynamic and kinetic phenomena that control the vapor-liquid-solid growth of semiconductor nanowires. Congratulations!

 Top-down view of the vapor-liquid-solid growth mechanism forming nanoscale crystals with embedded heterogeneity. Several sub-processes are illustrated, some only recently discovered, that must be precisely choreographed to produce the desired structures.
