Liu selected for YIP Award
Jianlin Liu

Electrical Engineering Associate Professor Jianlin Liu is one of this year’s recipients of the Army Research Office Young Investigator Program (YIP) Award for his proposal “Electrically Pumped ZnO Ultraviolet Diode Lasers.”

Ultraviolet semiconductor lasers have important civilian and defense applications in high-density data storage, optical processing of information, and chemical/biological agent detection. Zinc oxide (ZnO) is recognized as one of the most promising materials for efficient ultraviolet lasing.

Liu’s three-year project is designed to create highly efficient, reliable ZnO-based semiconductor diode lasers. Preliminary results in his group have already shown promise toward reaching this goal.

The Army’s Young Investigator Program seeks to identify and support academic scientists who have received Ph.D. or equivalent degrees within the last five years and who show exceptional promise for doing creative research.
