Synthesis of Hexagonal Boron Nitride Thin Films

Hexagonal boron nitride (hBN) is a wide band gap semiconductor with graphene-like structure and characteristics. This material has been identified as a potential candidate for diverse electronic, optoelectronic, nanophotonic and other applications. The goal of this project is to develop a method for synthesizing large domain, single crystalline hBN thin films through precipitation from an

Synthesis and Characterization of Traditional and Chalcogenide Nanocomposites

An emerging class of composite materials, known as nanocomposites, promises to realize the novel and often unparalleled performance of nanoscale structures (graphene, etc.) on a macroscopic scale. Polymers currently represent one of the most promising materials for reinforcement because they can be produced and processed at low temperatures. The research objective is to explore the
