Active Fermi Level Switching: Light Mediated Molecular Effect

Semester:

On October 14, our speaker was, Ph. Jacob W. Ciszek, he works as an assistant professor in the chemistry department at the Loyola University  and he came to talk to us about his current research of “Active Femi Level Switching: Light Mediated Molecular Effects.” This involves the study of how molecules are absorbed on metal, can end up altering the energy state of the metal.

Active Fermi Level Switching

Semester:

The title of chemistry seminar that was held on Oct. 14th 2010 was “Active Fermi Level Switching: Light Mediated Molecular Effect.” The guest speaker was Jacob W. Ciszek who is an assistant professor at the chemistry department of the Loyola University. He published nineteen publications as a graduate student, focusing on molecular electronics. His current research focuses on how molecules absorbed on the surface can dynamically alter the Fermi level, the highest energy state of a metal where the electrons reside.

Dr. Jacob Ciszek, from Loyola University in Chicago Illinois came to give us a talk about active fermi level switching.

It was a very interesting presentation given by Dr. Ciszek he has some very powerful ideas about how to make things like led's in computer screens and solar panels more efficient. Of course that's not all he was trying to accomplish, instead they were just to examples of things that could be accomplished given proper use of his techniques.

     This week’s speaker was Jacob Ciszek, who is a chemist that is currently working on molecular electronics, that is computing based on electrical switching of a single molecule.  Ciszek’s presentation was done in an understandable way and I found it to be very interesting.   He first told of some example of systems containing organic materials such as organic field effect transistor; light emitting diodes (OLEDs), and solar cells.

Semester:

This week's seminar in chemistry presentation was given by Jacob W. Ciszek. Dr. Ciszek's presentation was titled: "Active Fermi Level Switching: Light Mediated Molecular Effect". He began by talking about Metal organic interfaces where this research could have an application in. These included Organic field effect transistors, organic light emitting diodes, and organic solar cells. Specifically, Dr. Ciszek's group is interested in the interfaces.

Energy through an Organic and Inorganic Interface

Semester:

As a society, we are constantly searching for more efficient sources of energy. Chemistry Seminar on October 14, 2010 explored the surfaces of organic light emitting diodes in search of greater efficiency.  The seminar was entitled “Active Fermi Level Switching: Light Mediated Molecular Effect”. Dr. Jacob W. Ciszek , the guest speaker, is from Loyola University where he is an associate professor. He obtained his PhD in Chemistry from Rice University. Dr. Cisek’s main work looks at the interface between organic material and an inorganic conductor.
