CHANG-YONG NAM


PRINCIPAL INVESTIGATOR

Chang-Yong Nam 
Scientist
Center for Functional Nanomaterials, Brookhaven National Laboratory
Adjunct Professor
Dept. Materials Science and Engineering, Stony Brook University



Dr. Nam received his Ph.D. in Materials Science and Engineering from University of Pennsylvania in 2007 for his work on the synthesis and electrical transport property characterization in GaN nanowires (with John E. Fischer). From 2007 to 2010, he was a Goldhaber Distinguished Fellow at the Center for Functional Nanomaterials, Brookhaven National Laboarotry (BNL) (with Charles T. Black), where his research was focused on correlating optoelectrical properties of organic semiconductors with their photovoltaic and electronic device performances. Dr. Nam's current research aims utilization of unconventional nanofabrication methods (infiltration synthesis, block copolymers) for developing nanostructured semiconductor architectures for energy and electronic device applications.
