The Waterloo Institute for Nanotechnology (WIN) is pleased to present a Distinguished Lecture Series talk by Dr. Paul Weiss, UC Presidential Chair and a distinguished professor of chemistry, biochemistry, bioengineering, and materials science & engineering at UCLA.

Precise Chemical, Physical, and Electronic Nanoscale Contacts


The physical, electronic, mechanical, and chemical connections that materials make to one another and to the outside world are critical. Just as the properties and applications of conventional semiconductor devices depend on these contacts, so do nanomaterials, many nanoscale measurements, and devices of the future. We discuss the important roles that these contacts can play in preserving key transport and other properties. Initial nanoscale connections and measurements guide the path to future opportunities and challenges ahead. Band alignment and minimally disruptive connections are both targets and can be characterized in both experiment and theory. I discuss our initial forays into this area in a number of materials systems.
