Ma papers featured on covers of prestigious research journals
Two papers co-authored by Vilas Distinguished Professor of Electrical and Computer Engineering Zhenqiang (Jack) Ma have been highlighted by research publications in the fields of material science and advanced photonics research.
Highlighted on the cover of Advanced Functional Materials, Ma and his student co-authors put forth a concept for combining p-type and n-type organic semiconductors on a flexible substrate, forming one multifunctional material that could lead to lower cost solar panels and image sensor arrays. In addition, IEEE Photonics Journal featured a design for nanoscale, silicon nanomembrane-based optical lasers proposed by Ma and Weidong Zhou, a professor of electrical engineering at the University of Texas-Arlington. The paper originally appeared on July 22, 2012 in Nature Photonics.
