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!
