Seminar 9/28/2016 - Chunlei Guo, University of Rochester: Surface Functionalization with Femtosecond Lasers
Abstract: Femtosecond laser materials processing is a rapidly advancing field due to its high precision and versatility. In this talk, I will discuss a number of techniques developed in my lab that allow us to functionalize material surfaces through femtosecond laser processing. The techniques led to the creation of the so-called black and colored metals, brighter incandescent light sources, superhydrophillic and superhydrophobic surfaces. Possible applications of the functionalized materials will also be discussed.
Bio: Chunlei Guo is a Professor in The Institute of Optics and Department of Physics & Astronomy at University of Rochester. He also directs a newly established Center for Laser Material Processing. His research is in the area of femtosecond laser-matter interactions. He received his Ph.D. in Physics from University of Connecticut and a postdoctoral training at Los Alamos National Laboratory. His work at Rochester has led to the discoveries of a range of highly functionalized materials, which may find a broad range of applications and have been featured extensively by the media, including 4 New York Times features. He is a Fellow of American Physical Society and Optical Society of America. Currently, he serves as the Editor-in-Chief for one of the most widely used handbooks in lasers and optics, CRC Handbook of Laser Technology and Applications (2nd Edition).
All seminars are held on Wednesdays from 12:00 noon-1:00 p.m. in the Bowen Hall Auditorium Room 222. A light lunch is provided at 11:30 a.m. in the Bowen Hall Atrium immediately prior to the seminar.
