Nanoscale Metrology and Nanoelectronics, Safer Nanomaterials and Nanomanufacturing
Dr. Jun Jiao holds an M.S. in Physics and a Ph.D. in Materials Science and Engineering from the University of Arizona and is currently a professor of physics and electrical and computer engineering. She is also the director of the Center for Electron Microscopy and Nanofabrication at Portland State University (PSU), which is one of three ONAMI Shared User Facilities.
Dr. Jiao’s principal research interests concern nanoscale materials and the application of analytical techniques of electron microscopy.
Through her research, Dr. Jiao has collaborated with local high tech companies such as Intel, FEI, LSI Logic, Sharp Labs of America and local research institutions including Oregon State University, University of Oregon, and Washington State University.
Her current research is focused on the development of nanofabrication techniques for the property-controlled growth of nanotubes and nanowires, and the investigation of carbon nanotubes and semiconductor nanowires as building blocks for nanoelectronic devices and as the new generation of electron field emitters. The results of her nanomaterials research are documented in more than 130 publications in refereed journals as well as two patents.
