  • Repeating EventMeet USC: Admission Presentation, Campus Tour, and Engineering Talk

    Fri, Feb 01, 2019

    Viterbi School of Engineering Undergraduate Admission

    Workshops & Infosessions

    This half day program is designed for prospective freshmen (HS juniors and younger) and family members. Meet USC includes an information session on the University and the Admission process, a student led walking tour of campus, and a meeting with us in the Viterbi School. During the engineering session we will discuss the curriculum, research opportunities, hands-on projects, entrepreneurial support programs, and other aspects of the engineering school. Meet USC is designed to answer all of your questions about USC, the application process, and financial aid.

    Reservations are required for Meet USC. This program occurs twice, once at 8:30 a.m. and again at 12:30 p.m.

    Please make sure to check availability and register online for the session you wish to attend. Also, remember to list an Engineering major as your \"intended major\" on the webform!

    Talk Title: Perovskite Chalcogenides: Emerging Semiconductors for Visible to Infrared Optoelectronics

    Abstract: Rational design of new materials or identification of novel functionalities in underexplored materials, especially semiconductors, has been a key contributor to various electronic, photonic, and energy technologies. Transition metal perovskite chalcogenides (TMPCs), an emerging class of materials with rich tunability and functionality, are explored as stable, environmentally friendly semiconductors for optoelectronic applications. They can be viewed as the inorganic alternatives to hybrid halide perovskites, and chalcogenide counterparts of perovskite oxides with desirable optoelectronic properties in the visible to infrared part of the electromagnetic spectrum. TMPCs with perovskite and related structures can adopt three-dimensional, quasi-two-dimensional, and quasi-one-dimensional structural networks. Shanyuan will talk about the synthesis, characterization, and physical properties of TMPCs. The focus will be on several branches, including photovoltaic potential and anomalous bandgap evolution in three-dimensional and quasi-two-dimensional TMPCs, and building infrared optical anisotropy in quasi-one-dimensional TMPCs.
