About the Speaker
Michael McGehee is a professor in the Stanford School of Engineering's Material Science department. His research group studies the electrical and optical properties of organic semiconductors; self-assembly of inorganic nanostructures with organic structure directing agents; and fabrication of low-cost organic photovoltaic cells, light-emitting diodes and transistors. His primary interests and areas of expertise are organic electronics, patterning materials at the nanometer length scale, and developing materials for renewable energy and sustainability applications. Because McGehee has extensive experience with LEDs and lasers, future research projects may involve these areas as well.
