Multimaterial Multifunctional Nano-Structured Fibers

Senior Investigators:

Research Goals:

In this IRG, we will explore the materials science, design, fabrication, characterization, and potential identification of novel physical phenomena, of a truly unique class of fiber materials systems that are composed of conductors, insulators, glassy semiconductors, and especially crystalline semiconductors with 10’s of nanometers feature sizes. The uniqueness of our materials science approach should ultimately enable the creation of fiber-structures. These fibers, while comprising all the essential crystalline semiconductor device attributes, will be processed using conventional fiber draw processing approaches thus yielding kilometers of fiber structures with engineered electronic, optical, thermal and acoustic properties, and exploiting photonic bandgap phenomena wherever needed.

 

Research Highlights:

One-way photonic behavior
Flexible fiber camera
A new process for creating in-fiber semiconductor filament arrays
MRSEC-supported research leads to an electrifying start-up
