Nanoengineering Materials for Sensors, Devices, and Semiconductors

Professor Donald Sirbuly

Nanoscale materials, or nanomaterials, are those in which at least one relevant length scale is within the range of nanometers. The properties of these materials are usually very different from those of their bulk counterparts because of the importance of quantum and surface boundary effects. Research in the Sirbuly Lab focuses on exploiting the unique optical, mechanical, and electrical properties of nanoscale materials to develop novel integrated systems for various applications, including sensing, biodiagnostics, energy conversion, and spectroscopy. We will discuss all aspects of the manufacturing process of new devices and materials, including synthesis, fabrication/integration, and characterization.

Instructor: Donald Sirbuly is Associate Professor in the NanoEngineering Department at UC San Diego. He received his PhD in Inorganic Chemistry from UC Santa Barbara and was a postdoctoral researcher at UC Berkeley.
