This project crosses the boundaries between physics, chemistry, and engineering, which will provide students with a unique opportunity for interdisciplinary training. Students will be exposed to optical design and engineering, nanoscale transport phenomena, signal processing, low temperature physics, and photochemistry. Furthermore, this work will allow us to initiate new and strengthen existing collaborations with many research groups around the world. For example, Prof. Ling Zangs lab at University of Utah, Prof. Luping Yu at the University of Chicago, and Prof. Klaus Mullens group at the Max Planck Institute in Mainz, Germany will provide us with candidate molecules, Dr. Yoshihiro Asai at the National Institute of Science and Technology (AIST) in Ibaraki, Japan will guide the experimental work with theoretical calculations, and Dr. Ray Tsuis group at Motorola Labs will bring device application expertise to team.
