External roles and responsibilities
Dr. Kevin Chung-Che Huang obtained his PhD in optoelectronics at the Optoelectronics Research Centre (ORC), University of Southampton in 2005. He has initiated and has been working on functional chalcogenide materials containing S, Se or Te elements fabricated by chemical vapour deposition (CVD), atomic layer deposition (ALD) and Van der Waals Epitaxy since he began his PhD study at the ORC in 2001. Recently this technology has been applied to fabricate wafer-scale emerging 2D materials, such as graphene and transition metal di-chalcogenides. We have developed a unique process for fabricating wafer-scale MoS2, now published in Nanoscale, which has generated a huge impact in the research community. Kevin has established more than 60 active academic collaborations worldwide based on the materials his team fabricates. He has written and contributed to more than 80 publications including 13 invited talks. He is the holder of a patent based on germanium sulphide based materials fabricated by CVD. Currently, he is a Senior Research Fellow at the ORC and leads research in “Advanced Functional Chalcogenide and 2D Materials” with CVD, ALD and Van der Waals Epitaxy for photonic devices, phase-change memory, thin-film solar cells, photo-catalyst, nano-electronics and other emerging applications. His CVD and 2D materials research has currently contributed to some active research Grants with the total values greater than £21M through EPSRC in the U.K., including our 7 year Future Photonics Hub which has been established to work with industry.
