HybriD3

Team

The collaborative team involved in the HybriD3 project includes researchers from Duke University, the University of North Carolina, Chapel Hill, and North Carolina State University.

Duke University

Volker BlumVolker Blum– Associate Professor in the Department of Mechanical Engineering and Materials Science at Duke University, with more than 20 years of experience in computational materials and molecular simulations and development of new methods and algorithms for first-principles, quantum-mechanics based materials predictions. Within HybriD3, Blum and his group concentrate on theory and simulations of new organic-inorganic hybrid materials and their components.

David MitziDavid MitziSimon Family Professor in the Department of Mechanical Engineering and Materials Science at Duke University. Specializes in organic and hybrid synthesis, with more than 20 years of experience pioneering new hybrid organic-inorganic perovskites. Within HybriD3, Mitzi and his group concentrate on experimental synthesis and structural characterization of new organic-inorganic hybrid materials and their components.

University of North Carolina, Chapel Hill

Yosuke KanaiYosuke Kanai– Associate Professor in the Department of Chemistry at UNC. Specializes in theory and computation, with more than 15 years of experience in developing and applying computational methods based on first-principles electronic structure theory.

Wei YouWei You Professor of Chemistry and Applied Physical Sciences at UNC. His activity in HybriD3 focuses on the synthesis of specially designed conjugated organic molecular cations, for incorporation into the hybrids as well as assisting crystal growth activities and device fabrication/ testing.

North Carolina State University

Kenan GundogduKenan GundogduAssociate Professor in the Department of Physics at NCSU. Specializes in optoelectronic and prototype device characterization, with 15 years of experience investigating optical/ electronic condensed matter systems using optical spectroscopy techniques.

Franky SoFranky So– The Walter and Ida Freeman Distinguished Professor in the Department of Materials Science and Engineering at NCSU. Specializes in optoelectronic and device characterization, with more than 25 years of experience in light-emitting devices based on organic and inorganic semiconductors.
