Title: Self-Assembly of Nanostructured Electronic Devices (454th Brookhaven Lecture)

Given suitable atmospheric conditions, water vapor from the air will crystallize into beautiful structures: snowflakes. Nature provides many other examples of spontaneous organization of materials intmore »o regular patterns, which is a process known as self-assembly. Since self-assembly works at all levels, it can be a useful tool for organizing materials on the nanometer scale. In particular, self-assembly provides a precise method for designing materials with improved electronic properties, thereby enabling advances in semiconductor electronics and solar devices. On Wednesday, December 16, at 4 p.m. in Berkner Hall, Charles Black of the Center for Functional Nanomaterials (CFN) will explore this topic during the 454th Brookhaven Lecture, entitled “Self-Assembly of Nanostructured Electronic Devices.” Refreshments will be offered before and after the lecture. To attend this open-to-the-public event, visitors to the Lab ages 16 and older must present photo ID at the Main Gate. During this talk, Dr. Black will discuss examples of how self-assembly is being integrated into semiconductor microelectronics, as advances in the ability to define circuit elements at higher resolution have fueled more than 40 years of performance improvements. Self-assembly also promises advances in the performance of solar devices; thus he will describe his group’s recent results with nanostructured photovoltaic devices.« less
