"A Hybrid Molecular-Nanocrystal Platform for Photon Upconversion" presented by Dr. Ming Lee Tang

Dr. Ming Lee Tang is the Assistant Professor of Chemistry at the University of California, Riverside. The Tang Group focuses on the design, synthesis and characterization of novel hybrid organic-inorganic materials. Emphasis is on the synthesis of tailor-made organic ligands designed to control, enhance or mediate the optoelectronic properties of nanocrystals (NCs). The use of synthetic organic chemistry in ligand design enables desired properties to be embedded in a modular and scalable manner. These ligands allow the size, shape and material dependent properties of the NCs to be harnessed for energy, metamaterial and optoelectronic applications. The synthetic expertise in this group is complemented by single molecule spectroscopic and thin-film current-voltage measurements.T
