ASU MBE Optoelectronics Group


Professor Yong-Hang Zhang was elected as the chair for both International Conference and the North American Conference on MBE

Prof. Yong-Hang Zhang

Professor Yong-Hang Zhang was elected as the chair of the advisory boards for both the International Conference (IC MBE) and the North American Conference on MBE (NAMBE) in recognition of his outstanding leadership, contributions and achievements in the area of molecular beam epitaxy and its applications.

It is worth mentioning that our group has a total of three students who received 2 Best Student Presentation Award and 1 Student Poster Award in past year’s MBE conferences. Congratulations to Professor Zhang, and to his group for their contributions!

Maxwell Lassise and Cheng-Ying Tsai attended MIOMID 2018

The 14th International Conference on Mid-IR Optoelectronics: Materials and Devices (MIOMD 2018) was successfully held in Flagstaff, Arizona from October 7-10, 2018. The conference was co-chaired and organized by Prof. Zhang and many of our group alumni and collaborator, Fisher Yu, Elizabeth Steenbergen, Stephen Sweeney, and Shane Johnson. It brought together many scientists and engineers from across the world to discuss recent progress and future trends in infrared optoelectronics. Congratulations to Maxwell Lassise and Cheng-Ying Tsai for successfully delivering their contributed presentations, and thanks to the coauthors for their hard work.

The 20th international Conference on Molecular Beam Epitaxy(ICMBE 2018) was successfully held in Shanghai, China, September 2-7. Calli Campbell, Maxwell Lassise, Cheng-Ying Tsai and Jia Ding delivered contributed presentations while Professor Yong-Hang Zhang gave an invited talk.  Congratulations, and thanks to all of the presenters and their coauthors for their participation and contribution.

Maxwell Lassise presented at NAMBE 2018

Congratulations to Maxwell Lassise for his successful presentation at the 34th North American Conference on Molecular Beam Epitaxy (NAMBE 2018), Banff, Canada. Thanks to Max and his coauthors for their great contribution.

Calli Campbell won the Outstanding Student Paper MBE Award by ICMBE!

Calli CampbellCalli Campbell is awarded the Outstanding Student Paper MBE Award in recognition of her excellent presentation during International Conference on Molecule Beam Epitaxy(ICMBE) 2018. Calli earned one of the two Outstanding Student awards out of 135 student contributed presentations. Her presentation, “MBE growth and band-offset measurement of CdTe/InSb(002) heterovalent interface,” discussed using X-ray photoelectronic spectroscopy to investigate the junction between MBE-grown crystalline compounds cadmium telluride and indium antimonide which often used in the applications like solar cells, lasers and multi-color photodetectors. Great Congratulations to Calli, and to coauthors Dr. Xingye Wang and Professor Robert Nemanich for their contributions to this project.

Calli Campbell presented at 2018 WCPEC(PVSC)

As a best student presentation finalist, Calli Campbell successfully delivered the presentation entitled “Lift-off technology using water soluble MgTe layer for high-efficiency CdTe and MgxCd1-xTe solar cells”, at the World Conference on Photovoltaic Energy Conversion(WCPEC-7/PVSC), Waikoloa, Hawaii. Congratulation to Calli and her coauthors Cheng-Ying Tsai and Jia Ding for their contributions to  developing a new list of technologies for II-VI thin-films grown on InSb substrate.
