Researchers in the Chemistry Department at Missouri S&T have found an unprecedented, economical way to produce highly-ordered films of semiconductors for applications in flexible electronics, solar cells, and LEDs. The research is published in the April 12, 2019 issue of Science. The research was directed by Dr. Jay A. Switzer, the Donald L. Castleman Distinguished Professor of Chemistry and Senior Investigator of the Materials Research Center. The diverse research team also consisted of Meagan Kelso and Naveen Mahenderkar, graduate students in Materials Science and Engineering, Qingzhi Chen, a graduate student in Chemistry, and John Tubbesing, a senior undergraduate in Chemistry. Articles about the team & their research were recently released in C&EN and the MRS Bulletin. DOI: 10.1126/science.aaw6184
