Three Ohio University physicists traveled to Chengdu, China this semester, to present their research at the EMN Open Access Week 2019, the International Conference on Energy, Materials and Nanotechnology.

Dr. Alexander (Sasha) Govorov, Dr. Sergio Ulloa, and Dr. Eric Stinaff were joined by OHIO alumnus Dawei Zhai (Ph.D. ’18), a postdoctoral researcher at Hong Kong University. In addition to being an OHIO Distinguished Professor of Physics, Govorov holds a three-year visiting professorship appointment at at the Institute of Fundamental and Frontier Sciences, which is part of the University of Electronic Science and Technology of China.

Stinaff is the Director of OHIO’s Nanoscale and Quantum Phenomena Institute, or NQPI. His presentation was on optoelectronic studies of semiconductor nanostructures, while Ulloa discussed Edges and 2D Materials and unique one-dimensional electronic states.

“Sasha’s research includes collaboration with Zhiming Wang who heads the Institute of Fundamental and Frontier Sciences at the University of Electronic Science and Technology of China (UESTC) to work in areas of interest to NQPI,” Stinaff said. “It’s important to attend conferences like this one because building and maintaining collaborations with researchers in our field strengthens our efforts in NQPI through new ideas and shared efforts.”

“I collaborated with Zhiming in 2008 and we have a publication together,” Stinaff added. “The conference hospitality which included a fantastic hot pot was memorable, as well.”
