Talk Title: Smart thermal infrared regulation with metal-insulator transition
Professor Junqiao Wu received a B.S. from Fudan University and a M.S. from Peking University, China, both in physics. He obtained a Ph.D. degree in Applied Science and Technology from the University of California, Berkeley for work on nitride semiconductors and highly mismatched semiconductor alloys. He did postdoctoral research in the Department of Chemistry and Chemical Biology at Harvard University on phase transitions in transition metal oxide nanomaterials. He began his faculty appointment in the Department of Materials Science and Engineering at the University of California, Berkeley in 2006. His honors include the Berkeley Fellowship, the 29th Ross N. Tucker Memorial Award, the U.C. Regents’ Junior Faculty Fellowship, the Berkeley Presidential Chair Fellowship, the US-NSF Career Award, the US-DOE Early Career Award, the Presidential Early Career Award for Scientists and Engineers (PECASE) from the White House, the Outstanding Alumni Award from Peking University China, the Bakar Faculty Fellows Award, and elected Fellow from the American Physical Society (APS).
The Wu group explores novel properties and applications of strongly correlated electron materials with reduced dimensions, phase transitions at the nanoscale, and optoelectronic, thermal and thermoelectric properties of semiconductor alloys and interfaces.
