Seminar | January 27 | 2-3 p.m. | 277 Cory Hall

 Berkeley Nanosciences and Nanoengineering Institute

Quantum transport, with atomistic level control, plays a major role in determining the physical characteristics of materials. In this way, various new materials and novel device architectures can be created.

In this talk, I will start by discussing new concepts for producing batteries, to eliminate the drawbacks of conventional ones and provide full control over the electron and ion transport in a programmable way. I will describe quantum electron engineering as an entirely new approach to physics and chemistry for redesigning traditional battery technology and move it beyond existing theoretical limits. In effect, I will decode complex matter to introduce control over any given battery chemistry to provide a blueprint for the next battery technology, while unlocking the potential for 2D materials in areas such as biology, flexible electronics, and spintronics.

At the end of the talk, I will also briefly discuss our recent projects, including aerogel-based electronic and medical devices, AI assisted sensing, battery-free information by backscattering, field effect solar cells, etc.

Onur Ergen did his PhD in Physics here at UC Berkeley (Go Bears!) and after working for Apple and Intel and his own startups joined the faculty at Istanbul Tech in 2020. He already holds over a dozen patents, and received a prestigious European Research Council (ERC) grant, titled quantum super-exchange energy storage platform (QUEEN)., 510-643-6681
