Central Calendar

Friday, March 6, 2020

Please join the Physics Department for a talk by Dr. Atilla Ozgur Cakmak, a member of CNEU, about a complete undergraduate research to create an ultra-thin absorber.

Dr. Cakmak will present a case study that is carried out at the nanoscale. He will start his presentation by introducing the concept of absorbers and their importance in solar cell applications as well as in optical signal processing. He will show the steps that were undertaken in order to build an ultra-thin absorber fully manufactured by undergraduate students over a summer project.

Gold nanoparticle synthesis has been the key component in attaining the ultra-thin absorber. Atomic layer deposition and sputtering methods have been utilized to realize the absorbers in the end.

Dr. Cakmak will conclude his talk by introducing the one-year, non-thesis master’s degree together with the hands-on intensive, undergraduate summer capstone program at CNEU.
