|Materials Science Program seminar|
by Jane P. Chang, Professor and the William F. Seyer Chair in Materials Electrochemistry
Department of Chemical and Biomolecular Engineering, UCLA
The demand of engineering metal oxide thin films at an atomic level has grown immensely due to their versatile applications in numerous technologically advanced fields including microelectronics, optoelectronics, photonics, spintronics, energy storage devices and sensors. In this talk, I will discuss current research advances in atomic layer deposition for synthesizing multifunction and complex metal oxides with tailored electronic, chemical, interfacial, thermal properties and microstructures. Specifically, I will highlight our most recent research on the engineering of oxide thin films and their integration, for applications as multi-ferroic materials or solid state electrolyte in high speed electronics and energy storage devices.
Prof. Chang's research focuses on the synthesis and chemical processing of novel and multifunctional materials, atomistic understanding of solid state interfaces, and their applications in microelectronics, optoelectronics, microsensors, and energy storage devices. Specifically, her research group studies the synthesis of metal oxide thin films and nanostructures with tailored electronic, chemical, and thermal properties by novel atomic layer controlled thermal, radical, and plasma enhanced deposition techniques and hydrothermal processing, develops highly selective plasma etching processes for patterning nano-metered thin films, designs and develops micro chemical sensors and engineers the multi-element oxide materials needed in various energy storage devices. In addition, her research group integrates the experimental and first-principle theoretical approaches to elucidate the fundamental physical and chemical origins of superior material and electronic properties.
