    1. "Interface Engineering for High Performance Metal-Insulator-Semiconductor Photosynthesis Cells"


    Speaker:  Prof. Paul McIntyre

    Affliation:  Chair of Department of Materials Science and Engineering, Stanford University
    Time: 9:00am, June14th, 2017
    Location: RM324, Chao Kuang Piu Hall of Science and Technology, Yuquan Campus, Zhejiang University
                              Paul McIntyre
    Paul McIntyre is Professor and Department Chair of Materials Science and Engineering, and is a Senior Fellow of the Precourt Institute for Energy at Stanford University.  He is also a Faculty Director of Stanford’s Energy 3.0 industrial affiliates program.  McIntyre leads a research team of graduate students, post-doctoral researchers, visiting scientists and consulting professors who perform basic research on nanostructured inorganic materials for applications in electronics and energy technologies.  He is best known for his work on metal oxide/semiconductor interfaces, ultrathin metal oxide films, atomic layer deposition, semiconductor nanowires, and materials for (photo)electrochemical energy transformations.  His research is supported by several U.S. government agencies and major corporations in the semiconductor and energy sectors.  McIntyre has authored or coauthored approximately 250 journal articles and refereed conference papers that have been cited over 13000 times for a Hirsch Index of 58 (Google Scholar). He has received two IBM Faculty Awards, a Charles Lee Powell Foundation Faculty Scholarship and an SRC Inventor Recognition award.  McIntyre was a GCEP Distinguished Lecturer in 2010, the inaugural Colorado School of Mines & National Renewable Energy Laboratory Distinguished Lecturer in 2016, and received the Woody White Award of the Materials Research Society in 2011. 

    2. "Mesoscale Networks: from Microstructure Evolution to Material Properties"
    Speaker:  Prof. Wei Cai
    Affliation:  Department of Mechanical Engineering, and, by courtesy, Department of Materials Science and Engineering, Stanford University
    Time: 10:00am, June14th, 2017
    Location: RM324, Chao Kuang Piu Hall of Science and Technology, Yuquan Campus, Zhejiang University
                                 Wei Cai


    Wei Cai received his B.S. degree in optoelectronic engineering from Huazhong University of Science and Technology, P. R. China in 1995, and his PhD degree in nuclear engineering from Massachusetts Institute of Technology in 2001.  He was a Lawrence Postdoctoral Fellow at the Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory from 2001 to 2004.  He is currently an Associate Professor in the Department of Mechanical Engineering at Stanford University.  He received the Presidential Early Career Award for Scientists and Engineers in 2004, and the American Society of Mechanical Engineers Hughes Young Investigator Award in 2013. His research interests include dislocation dynamics and metal plasticity, atomistic simulations of deformation, synthesis and transport mechanisms at the nanoscale.  He is co-author of 95 journal publications in these and related fields, a book “Computer Simulations of Dislocations” (2006) and a undergraduate/graduate textbook, “Imperfections in Crystalline Solids” (2016).
