Professor Jung Han
Jung Han is a Professor of Electrical Engineering at Yale University, New Haven, Connecticut. He holds a BS degree in electrical engineering from National Taiwan University and MS and PhD degrees in electrical engineering from Purdue University. His PhD and postdoctoral research focus on the blue-green laser diodes by MBE. Before joining Yale University in 2001, he was a principal member of technical staff at Sandia National Laboratories (Albuquerque, New Mexico) where he studied the growth and fabrication of ultraviolet (UV) light emitting diodes.
His current activities includes semiconductor research for energy-efficient solid state lighting and general illumination. Epitaxy and synthesis of low-dimensional nanostructures including quantum dots, quantum wells, and nanowires for enhanced emission properties. Understanding and control of crystal growth processes at the atomic level. Thermodynamic and kinetic issues during chemical vapor deposition. Nanoscopic optical phenomena including random lasing, superradiance, and superfluorescence for high performance stimulated and spontaneous emission. The use of nanostructures in highly-sensitive chemical and biological sensing.
His received an R&D 100 award (2004) and an MRS Ribbon award (2005) and is a senior member of IEEE. He has served as reviewers and panelists for agencies including National Science Foundation, Department of Energy, and Department of Defense. He has authored and coauthored more than one hundred fifty papers in peer-reviewed journals and holds six US patents.
