(Patrick) #1

In a collaboration between Samsung, the University of Houston, and Ulsan National Institute of Science and Technology, Ding-Shyue “Jerry” Yang, assistant professor of chemistry, will work on characterizing new properties for low-dimension optoelectronic compounds.

This exploratory research is a new collaboration, with the potential for renewal,” said Yang, who has been a faculty member in the College of Natural Sciences and Mathematics since 2012.

Optoelectronic compounds are materials that respond to light, providing an electronic response. Examples include the photovoltaic materials used in solar panels.
