U of M names Distinguished McKnight University Professors for 2007

Abstract:
Uwe Kortshagen, Mechanical Engineering, Cold Gas and Hot Electrons: Plasma Research for Microelectronics and Energy Technologies

Kortshagen is internationally known for his research on partly ionized gases, also known as plasmas. His research has influenced various areas of plasma science and engineering. His theoretical and experimental studies of plasmas at low pressures have led to a better fundamental understanding of their properties, and to the development of more accurate models for such plasmas used in microelectronics manufacturing. His more recent work on the plasma synthesis of nanoparticles--small crystals containing only a few hundreds of atoms--aims at developing new improved materials for energy-efficient light sources and for highly efficient low-cost solar cells. The plasma technologies developed by Kortshagen's group are now being commercialized for the manufacture of solar cells based on silicon nanoparticle inks. Kortshagen and his students have received numerous intra- and extramural honors and his work has been published in over 75 articles in peer-reviewed journals.
