Biography

John Kouvetakis joined the School of Molecular Sciences in 1992, as an assistant professor. His research interests include solid-state and molecular inorganic chemistry, as well as materials science of main group semiconductors.

Professor Kouvetakis received his B.S. and Ph.D. degrees in chemistry from the University of California at Berkeley, in 1984 and 1988, respectively. From 1988 to1989 he was a postdoctoral fellow with IBM, T. J Watson Research Center, Yorktown Heights NY. From 1989 to 1992, he was a staff scientist at Raychem Corporate Labs (part of TYCO International) in Menlo Park, CA. 

Education
  • Ph.D. Chemistry, University of California-Berkeley 1988
  • B.S. Chemistry, University of California-Berkeley 1984
Research Interests

My research activities bridge the areas of inorganic chemistry, applied physics and materials science of semiconductor and refractory materials. The design, preparation and applications of novel solid state and molecular systems are particularly emphasized. Current thrusts include: (a) synthesis of purpose-built, main group inorganic hydrides with tailored reactivities and stoichiometries, enabling formation of functional material architectures that cannot be obtained by conventional routes, (b) growth of silicon-based photonic materials for the development of prototype photodetectors, modulators, and multijunction photovoltaic devices, (c) integration of dissimilar materials with Si technologies (including III-V and II-VI compounds for monolithic integration) via epitaxy driven synthesis methods, (d) advanced wide band gap semiconductor materials for breakthrough applications in solar energy, solid state lighting and optoelectronics semiconductors, (e) solid-state inorganic chemistry based on light elements (refractory carbides, nitrides, borides and C-N frameworks).
