Professor Ji Ung Lee of University at Albany SUNY’s College of Nanoscale Science and Engineering leads a team of researchers in fabricating and characterizing carbon nanostructured devices. Argiris Malapanis, a graduate student in Lee’s group, presented some of that work at the March 2012 meeting of the American Physical Society (APS). The APS March meeting is the largest meeting of physicists in the world, and the 2012 meeting in Boston was an opportunity for the Lee group to share their progress in the fast-moving field of carbon nanotubes.
Mr. Malapanis spoke on his work characterizing carbon nanotube diodes in a talk titled “Current-induced cleaning of adsorbates from suspended, single-walled carbon nanotube diodes.” His talk was one of over 500 contributed sessions in a meeting that attracts approximately 7,000 papers per year. The Lee group will also participate in the 2013 APS March meeting, which will take place at the Baltimore Convention Center in Baltimore, Maryland, during March 18-22, 2013.
