Series of Dept Research Seminars - "Manufacturing Nano Devices using Low-Dimensional Material: from design to applications" (Date: 11 March 2016)
Our Speaker Dr. King Wai Chiu Lai would like to share with us on "Manufacturing Nano Devices using Low-Dimensional Material: from design to applications".
Low-dimensional materials, such as carbon nanotubes, graphene and nanowires, are attractive building blocks for high-performance nanoscale electronic, photonic and mechanical devices. These materials behave quite differently from conventional materials, which offer superior quantum optical, electrical and mechanical effects. Making low-dimensional material based functional nano devices is one of the most challenging frontiers of manufacturing. In this talk, the speaker will present the development of robust nanomanufacturing technology for effective fabrication, assembly, packaging and testing of nanoscale devices with various low-dimensional materials. The applications of these nanodevices to photovoltaic cells, nanosensors and electronics will also be presented.
Nanomanufacturing refers to a series of tools and processes to build nanoscale structures and devices using nanomaterials. In particular, the new tools will be discussed in this talk include nano robots for assembly, and micro plasma fabrication system for nano fabrications. In addition, the development of an integrated nano manufacturing process including low dimensional material purification, bandgap tuning, packaging and testing will also be presented. The integrations of the above tools and processes have provided effective and efficient nanomanufacturing systems for fabrication of the next generation of nanoscale optical sensors and electronic devices. The examples of manufacturing nano photovoltaic devices and electronic devices using the integrated nanomanufacturing systems will also be presented.
All are welcome and no registration is in need.
