About the Speaker

Dr. Li received a BSc and an MSc in Chemistry at National Taiwan University. After 5 years of R&D at Taiwan Semiconductor Manufacturing Company (1997-2002), he obtained his PhD from Oxford University in 2006.

He was an Assistant Professor in Nanyang Technological University Singapore (2006-2009). Since 2010, he has become an Associate Professor at Academia Sinica Taiwan and he started his KAUST position in 2014. He is now a Professor of MSE at KAUST.

Seminar details

Atomically thin 2D Transition Metal Dichalcogenide (TMD) materials provide a wide range of basic building blocks with unique electrical, optical, and thermal properties which do not exist in their bulk counterparts. Our recent demonstration in vapor phase growth of TMD monolayer such as MoS2 and WSe2 has stimulated the research in growth and applications. The growth of TMD layers is scalable and these layer materials can be transferred to desired substrates, making them suitable building blocks for constructing multilayer stacks for various applications.
