Tuesday, November 14th from 6:00 - 7:30 PM

Delia Milliron  |  Professor, Department of Chemical Engineering

  • Professor Milliron is the ​Bill L. Stanley Endowed Leadership Chair in the McKetta Department of Chemical Engineering

  • The Milliron Group focuses on chemical synthesis and assembly of nanostructured electronic and electrochemical materials, processing-structure-property relationships, energy and electronic devices.

  • Professor Milliron's research group is composed of chemists, materials scientists, and engineers motivated by the challenges of next-generation electronic devices and energy technologies


Tuesday, October 17th from 6:00 - 7:30 PM

Edward Yu  |  Professor, Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering

"Semiconductors for Sustainable Energy Applications"

Abstract:  Semiconductors are the fundamental enabling material for
technologies ranging from computing and communications to solid-
state lighting to solar panels. In recent years there has also been a
resurgence of interest in re-establishing many semiconductor
manufacturing capabilities in the United States. In this presentation,
I will discuss some of my laboratory’s recent research on semiconductor-
based photoelectrode devices that enable splitting of water molecules
into hydrogen and oxygen using illumination by sunlight. These devices
perform with high efficiency and excellent stability, and can be
manufactured using nanoscale thin-film reactions and other processes
drawn from the world of semiconductor chip manufacturing. They have
the potential to enable cost-effective green hydrogen production, i.e., production of hydrogen without carbon dioxide emissions, thereby mitigating the ~830 million tons of carbon dioxide generated annually by current methods of commercial hydrogen production – a market of over $150 billion in 2022. I will also talk a bit about my own educational and career paths, and my perspective on STEM education and careers now and in the future.

Thursday, September 21st from 6:00 - 8:00 PM

Program Q&A and Poster Session featuring 2023 CREATE Alumni
