The Nanoscale and Quantum Phenomena Institute is proud to announce Jingzhou Wang as the recipient of the 2017 NQPI Outstanding Dissertation Award. Wang earned his Ph.D. in Electrical Engineering under the supervision of Ohio University professor of Electrical Engineering and Computer Science and NQPI member Wojciech Jadwisienczak in October 2016. His dissertation was titled, “Optical and Electrical Study of the Rare Earth Doped III-nitride Semiconductor Materials.”

Wang was recognized for his impressive publication record, prior research awards, and academic achievements. In his dissertation research, Wang applied deep-level transient spectroscopy (DLTS) to rare earth doping in III-nitrides. Jadwisienczak described his former student as “talented, technically skilled, highly motivated and determined.” Jadwisienczak noted that Wang’s work has garnered the interest of other researchers, who have applied his findings to numerical simulations describing quantum well structure of rare-earth elements.

Wang is now a technical patent claims evaluator for Global Prior Art, a Boston-based company that specializes in intellectual property management. “I’m glad to receive the NQPI Outstanding Dissertation award after years of hard work as a Ph.D. student,” Wang said. “Study(ing) at (OHIO) was a great experience. I appreciate the help from all my friends and colleagues. Go Bobcats!”
