Arnab K. Majee was selected as an Outstanding Teaching Assistant for his work with the Spring 2020 offering of ECE244: Modern Physics and Semiconductors for EEs. The award was announced at the annual ECE departmental ceremony, held virtually in May 2020, by the department head C. V. Hollot.
Great work, Arnab!
Our invited review of transport in heterostructures, published in Annalen der Physik, is among the top downloaded papers of 2019. Here is a link to that paper: https://doi.org/10.1002/andp.201800510
Our manuscript on heat dissipation in few-layer 2D WSe2 and its impact on transport has just been accepted in ACS Applied Materials & Interfaces: https://doi.org/10.1021/acsami.9b22039 Great work by Arnab Kumar Majee in collaboration with Prof. Amin Salehi-Khijin’s group at the University of Illinois at Chicago
Our lab has been awarded a three-year Computational and Data-enabled Science and Engineering (CDS&E) grant from the National Science Foundation to study thermal transport across interfaces between 2D materials and 3D substrates. Using first-principles methods, we will identify 2D-3D materials pairings that lead to better heat removal, enabling faster and higher-performance 2D nanoelectronics.

Here is our newest article, just accepted in the new open-access Journal of Physics: Materials, in which we identify materials properties that will lead to higher thermoelectric power factors in two-dimensional materials. This work will help researchers discover new 2D TEs in the future: https://doi.org/10.1088/2515-7639/ab4600
Our article on “Tuning charge transport dynamics via clustering of doping in organic semiconductor thin films” has been published https://t.co/N0G7usJYL9 in Nature Communications. This was a collaboration with with Dhandapani Venkataraman and my student Meenakshi Upadhyaya on the impact of dopant clustering on the TE performance of polymers. This work was featured in a UMass News article: https://www.umass.edu/newsoffice/article/how-capture-waste-heat-energy-improved and several scientific news outlets (EurekaAlert, Phys.org, Science Daily, etc.)
