Semiconductor Nanocrystals: Science and Applications

Semiconductor nanocrystals in the nanometer size range show a wealth of interesting photophysical properties and interesting applications. This talk will cover (1) aspects of their synthesis, processing, and incorporation into more complicated structures; (2) their photophysics concentrating on multiexciton processes both at the single nanocrystal level and at the ensemble level, and (3) their applications as light emitters in biology and in displays.

Moungi Bawendi received his AB in Chemistry at Harvard in 1982 and his PhD in Chemistry at The University of Chicago in 1988 where he worked on the statistical mechanics of polymers with Prof. Karl Freed, and on the high resolution infrared spectroscopy of molecular ions of astrophysical interest with Prof. Takeshi Oka. Prof. Bawendi's interest in nanocrystals began as a postdoctoral associate at Bell Laboratories from 1988-1990 working with Dr. Louis Brus. Prof. Bawendi was appointed as an assistant professor at MIT in 1990, where he has set up an interdisciplinary research group to develop the chemistry, physics, and applications of nanocrystals, concentrating on semiconductor nanocrystal quantum dots. Prof. Bawendi has received recognition for his work through awards that have included the Sackler Prize in the Physical Sciences. Prof. Bawendi is a fellow of the American Association for the Advancement of Science, and a fellow of the American Academy of Arts and Sciences.
