  7. (April 13, 2018) Congratulations to my four students that have successfully defended their Ph.D. thesis.

  • Pengyu Yuan on 3/29/2018. His work is focused on development of novel energy transport state-resolved Raman and study of electron and energy transport in MoS2.

  • Meng Han on 4/13/2018. His work in focused on the cross-plane thermal transport of graphene-based structures.

  1. (December 7, 2017) It is great to see that two of our group members: Pengyu Yuan and Tianyu Wang were awarded the Iowa State University Research Excellence Award. Pengyu has done a great job in the development of a break-through technology: Energy Transport State-resolved Raman (ET-Raman). He has done pioneering work on conjugated transport of electrons and phonons in 2D materials. Tianyu has done a great job in the development of time-domain differential Raman (ET-Raman) and frequency-resolved Raman (FR-Raman). Also he has developed one of the best technologies to identify the crystalline orientation of 2D materials.

  2. (October 20, 2017) We have developed a new anisotropic specific heat theory to precisely interpret the anisotropic thermal conductivity of materials. This theory takes into consideration of propagation direction of phonons when calculating its specific heat for thermal conductivity evaluation. Take the graphite as an example, the theory explains the very long phonon mean free path in the c-axis although the thermal conductivity in this direction is very small. Our prediction agrees very well with past experimental and theoretical mean free path data. Using this theory and our novel experimental characterization of the c-axis thermal reffusivity of graphene paper down to the 0 K limit, we have discovered a very long structure domain size around 234 nm in the c-axis, far above the graphene flake thickness (1.68~2.01 nm) in this graphene paper. It reveals excellent c-axis structure order despite the flexibility of graphene paper. The work has been accepted for publication in Carbon.

  3. (October 10, 2017) Our paper published in ChemPhysChem entitled “Identifying the Crystalline Orientation of Black Phosphorus by Using Optothermal Raman Spectroscopy” has been featured on the back cover of the issue 20/2017. (

  4. (September 12, 2017) Development of a breakthrough Energy Transport State Resolved Raman (ET-Raman). The ET-Raman makes it possible, for the first time, to characterize the interface thermal resistance and hot carrier diffusion coefficient of 2D atomic layer materials without the need of laser absorption data and temperature rise of the material. It eliminates the very large uncertainties introduced by 2D material optical properties variation and temperature rise evaluation. It is expected to have great and long-term impact in Raman-based energy transport studies and hot carrier behavior characterizations in 2D materials. The work has been accepted for publication in ACS Photonics.

  5. (August 11, 2017) A new polarized Optothermal Raman technique has been developed in our lab to identify the crystalline orientation of black phosphorus. Past Raman intensity based techniques faces big problems induced by optical interference, which involves the incident laser wavelength, Raman signal wavelength, and sample thickness, and are difficult to provide robust results. Our technique resolves all these issues and is able to provide solid information on crystalline orientation regardless of the sample thickness, Raman laser wavelength, and Raman signal wavelength. The work is accepted for publication in ChemPhysChem. 

  6. (July 31, 2017) Remarkable thermal conductivity increase for ultra-high molecular weight polyethylene (UHMW-PE) micro-fibers by amorphous structure tailoring. We have developed a temperature-gradient driven stretching method to align the amorphous structure in high crystallinity UHMW-PE microfibers. At room temperature, its thermal conductivity (k) is increased to 51 W/mK, representing a record-high level for PE fibers. This k is comparable to that of many metals, and will lead to broader applications of UHMW-PE fibers in thermal management with significantly reduced load. Details of the work can be found in our recent publication in ACS Omega [PDF available].

  7. (July 7, 2017) First time consideration of hot carrier diffusion in sub-10 nm MoS2 interface Energy Transport. For the first time, we have considered the hot carrier excitation, diffusion and recombination in Raman 2D atomic layer-substrate interface energy coupling study. The hot carrier effect could become significant when the diffusion length is long or laser heating spot size is small. Also we have measured the hot carrier’s diffusion coefficient and length directly without mechanical contact (different from the traditional contact electrical method) . This truely reveals the hot carrier diffusion in virgin 2D atomic layer materials. The work has been published in Nanoscale, 2017, 9, 6808. [PDF available]

  8. (May 25, 2017). Yangsu Xie has successfully finished her final oral defense of her Ph.D. dissertation. Jing Liu has done her very well on Apr. 6. Congratulations to both of them!

  9. (Apr. 20, 2017) Yangsu Xie has won the Iowa State University Research Excellent Award for her remarkable work on carbon nanostructures (graphene foam, graphene aerogel, and graphene paper). During her Ph.D. study, Yangsu has 1) discovered the switchable thermal conductivity of graphene paper, 2) reported the extremely low thermal conductivity of graphene aerogel, and 3) used the thermal reffusivity theory to investigate the defect-phonon scattering in carbon nanostructures and the structure domain size.

  10. (Dec. 8, 2016) Jing Liu has won the Iowa State University Research Excellence Award for her excellent work during her Ph.D. study. Jing has done a great job in 1) developing a novel Johnson noise technology for measuring the thermal conductivity of micro/nanoscale materials, 2) studying the crystalline structure and grain size in ultra-high molecular weight polyethylene fibers based on low-momentum phonon scattering using the residual thermal reffusivity at the 0 K limit, and 3) for the first time characterizing the thermal conductivity of mono- to fewlayered graphene at the mm size level. 

  11. (April 7, 2016) Shen Xu has won the prestigious 2016 Zaffarano Prizefor excellent graduate research at Iowa State University. This prize is to recognize superior performance in publishable research by an ISU graduate Student.

  12. Our work on Frequency-resolved Raman (FR-Raman) published in Optics Letters has been selected as the “10 highlighted papers for December 2015” by the OSA Applied Spectroscopy Group.
