Employment Opportunity

A postdoctoral position is open for our graphene nanoribbons (GNRs) project. We are developing new bottom-up approaches for atomically precise GNRs and studying their electronic properties. We are looking for a synthetic organic chemist with a published record of complex synthesis experience.

Please e-mail your CV and cover letter with references in PDF format to Prof. Alexander Sinitskii at sinitskii(at)unl.edu.

TiS3, a new 2D material

One completed a series of theoretical calculations to predict its properties with the help of a massive computing center. The other grew it in bulk before waxing its atom-thin whiskers with the assistance of adhesive tape.

Together, University of Nebraska-Lincoln chemists Xiao Cheng Zeng and Alexander Sinitskii have demonstrated that a compound called titanium trisulfide could surge toward the fore of two-dimensional materials that are gaining popularity among designers of microelectronics.

Ferroelectric Memories

The improvements in random access memory that have driven many advances of the digital age owe much to the innovative application of physics and chemistry at the atomic scale.

The researchers became the first to design a ferroelectric junction with electrodes made of graphene, a carbon material only one atom thick.
