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.

Weize's paper on plasmonic nanocrystal oxidation/reduction accepted for publication

The first manuscript from a collaboration between the Filler and McDowell labs at Georgia Tech has been accepted for publication in the Journal of Physical Chemistry C. Titled "Reversible Tuning of the Surface Plasmon Resonance of Indium Tin Oxide Nanocrystals by Gas-Phase Oxidation and Reduction," the work combined in situ infrared spectroscopy and reaction-diffusion modeling to understand the gas phase oxidation and reduction of plasmonic ITO nanocrystals. Weize Hu lead the effort, which included computational contributions from Siwei Guo and TEM imaging from Matthew Boebinger.

Review article on nanomanufacturing published online

A review/perspective paper authored by Profs. Filler, Behrens, and Breedveld, as well as Ph.D. student Maritza Mujica, titled "Process Principles for Large-Scale Nanomanufacturing" has been published online in the Annual Review of Chemical and Biomolecular Engineering. This paper outlines the process needs for translating recent advances in nanoscience to economically viable manufacturing environments.

Prof. Filler visits U. Chicago and U. South Florida

Prof. Filler recently gave invited talks at the James Franck Institute at the University of Chicago and at the Department of Chemical and Biomedical Engineering at the University of South Florida. In both cases, the title of his talk was "The Vapor-Liquid-Solid Mechanism: Encoding Heterogeneity at the Nanoscale" and featured the work of current student Dmitry Boyuk and former students Saujan Sivaram and Li-Wei Chou. 

 

Welcome Gözde Tütüncüoglu

We are excited to welcome Gözde Tütüncüoglu to the group as a postdoc. She received her Ph.D. from EPFL working with Anna Fontcuberta i Morral on the MBE growth of nanostructures. At Georgia Tech, Gözde will be working to understand and control thermal transport in semiconductor nanostructures. She is a joint member of the Filler and Maldovan groups.
