Happy World Environment Day!

Jun 8th, 2018

Our congratulations on behalf of the Environmental Science and Technology group (ESTg) with the World Environment Day. This day is a reminder that we must take good care of our surroundings. Let us do our small bit to make world a cleaner and healthier place to enjoy our life!! #environment #environmentalscience #protectenvironment #science#scienceandtechnology

Industry cooperation projects

Jun 5th, 2018

One of the successful results of cooperation of science with the industry. Our team is pleased to apply its skills in solving technological problems in the industrial companies, such as Karachaganak Petroleum Operating B.V.

Note: The Karachaganak field, discovered in 1979, is one of the world’s largest gas and condensate fields in Kazakhstan. (http://www.kpo.kz)

Great news for today: the youngest ESTg researcher Aldiyar Kuntubek visits Berkeley National Lab this summer!

May 16th, 2018

On behalf of the ESTg group, we congratulate Aldiyar Kuntubek with participation in a 2 month internship at The Molecular Foundry, Lawrence Berkeley National Lab!

Aldiyar Kuntubek, a BEng in Chemical Engineering student, will be participating in a 2 month internship at The Molecular Foundry, Lawrence Berkeley National Lab, starting June 2018. The internship position, which is sponsored by Dr Vasileios Inglezakis in the Chemical Engineering Department at Nazarbayev University, will be hosted by Dr. Tevye Kuykendall, a Senior Scientific Engineer at The Molecular Foundry (http://foundry.lbl.gov/) . The Molecular Foundry is a US Department of Energy-funded nanoscience research facility that provides users from around the world with access to cutting-edge expertise and instrumentation in a collaborative, multidisciplinary environment.

The research project will focus on the synthesis of 2D transition metal dichalcogenides (TMDs). TMDs have received a lot of attention recently, stemming from the discovery of emergent properties when reduced from bulk crystals to 2D layers, such as their transition to direct band gap, emerging charge density waves, high mobility, and valley polarization.The research aims to develop a synthetic process, through successive experiments and characterization, to control crystallinity, extent of conversion, and other properties producing high-quality TMD materials.

We wish further success to Aldiyar!
