Tevye Kuykendall is an expert in the field of III-V nanowire growth and characterization. His work concentrates on the synthesis and characterization of 1D and 2D semiconductor nanostructures such as III-Nitride nanowires, carbon nanotubes, graphene and 2D transition metal dichalcogenides. These materials have desirable optical and/or electrical properties that make them useful for a large range of applications – including light emission and collection in the visible to ultraviolet spectrum, chemical sensing and separation, transparent conductors, high-power electronics and many more. Some of the synthetic tools employed include the Thomas Swan MOCVD for III-Nitride materials, and the Aixtron Black Magic PECVD for CNT and graphene growth.
