NanoEngineering professor, Kesong Yang, and his team of researchers have discovered new hybrid halide materials beyond perovskites. These new materials would be stable and used to design hybrid semiconductor materials for optoelectronics.

The Department of NanoEngineering would like to congratulate Dr. Jesse Jokerst, for being awarded a five-year, $550,000 grant through the National Science Foundation's Faculty Early Career Development (CAREER) Program.

NanoEngineering professor, Dr.

NanoEngineering professor, Dr. Shirley Meng, is one of six UC San Diego faculty members who will be honored at the Chancellor's Associates Faculty Excellence Awards.

Nanoengineering professor, Dr. Nicole Steinmetz, is being recognized for Women's History Month by the National Nanotechnology Initiative. Dr.

UC San Diego researchers at the Center for Wearable Sensors have developed a new testing strip that can detect Fentanyl. Center Director and Chair of the Department of NanoEngineering, Dr.

Congratulations to Dr. Joseph Wang (Department of NanoEngineering Chair and Professor) and his research lab group on their paper published in Nature Biotechnology. Their latest paper presents their research on "Wearable Biosensors for Healthcare Monitoring."

The NanoEngineering Department would like to extend its congratulations to our Chair, Dr. Joseph Wang who was named recipient of the SEAC - Charles N. Reilley Award at the PITTCON 2019.  Dr.

NanoEngineering professor, David Fenning, and his team of researchers have reported using x-rays to explain how adding salt improves the performance of perovskite solar cells. According to Fenning, perovskite solar cells can potentially reduce costs while maintaining their performance.
