Welcome to hengwang group
We are a group of experimental material scientists at Illinois Institute of Technology, right next to the heart of the vibrant city of Chicago. We study the transport of charge (aka, electrons or holes) and heat (aka, phonons) in semiconductors.
Understanding, and being able to manipulate how the electrons and phonons move through a solid form the foundation of semiconductor industry and essentially every piece of electronic devices. The same question is of great importance to numerous areas of material research: thermoelectrics, photovoltaics (solar cells), battery, flexible electronics, just to name a few.
Now that you are here, please spend some time to learn more about our research, our team, or just have fun.
Oh, We would also like you to know that we are looking for motivated undergraduate and Masters students to join the group. please email us.
