Synthesis of Controlled III-Nitride Nanostructures
Jonathan Joseph Wierer Jr
Project runs from 11/15/2021 to 09/30/2022
This project researches methods to create advanced nanometer-scale semiconductor materials called quantum dots. This effort employs a new synthesis technique to create ensembles of these quantum dots with uniform sizes and understand how the synthesis impacts their physical properties.
The research is incorporated into K-12 education and outreach activities and integrated into graduate and undergraduate courses to broaden the educational experience beyond the laboratory.
