Hacettepe-Bilkent UNAM Health Sciences & Technologies Sancar Fellows and Seed Funds

Hacettepe – Bilkent UNAM Health Sciences and Technologies Program (HST), initiated through the R&D Cooperation Framework signed with Hacettepe University, allows for Hacettepe and Bilkent PI’s to utilize research infrastructures available at Hacettepe University and UNAM for common use in a reciprocal way. Within this framework, we are excited to announce two new joint programs: [...]

Asst. Prof. Serim Kayacan Ilday has been awarded L’Oréal-UNESCO For Women in Science

Asst. Prof. Serim Kayacan Ilday of UNAM has been awarded for this year’s ‘For Women in Science’ award, which is strived from the partnership of the L’Oréal Foundation and UNESCO (the United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization) to support and recognize accomplished women researchers, to encourage more young women to enter the profession and [...]
Near-unity efficiency energy transfer from colloidal quantum wells of CdSe/CdS nanoplatelets to a monolayer of MoS2

Near-unity efficiency energy transfer from colloidal quantum wells of CdSe/CdS nanoplatelets to a monolayer of MoS2

Near-Unity efficiency energy transfer from colloidal quantum wells of CdSe/CdS nanoplatelets to a monolayer of MoS2 Utilization of the energy transfer between different molecules has proven to be highly promising candidate for semiconductor nanocrystal optoelectronics including highly efficient light generation and harvesting in colloidal systems. This can be performed via transferring of the excitation energy [...]

A new way to generate multi-watt-level, octave-spanning, spectrally flat supercontinua

Spatiotemporal nonlinear dynamics in graded-index multimode fibers: a new way to generate multi-watt-level, octave-spanning, spectrally flat supercontinua A team of researchers led by Asst. Prof. Bülend Ortaç (UNAM) has published an important study in Nature Scientific Reports journal. In this study, Ortaç group proposed a novel method to achieve octave-spanning spectrally flat supercontinuum with world [...]
UNAM researchers show photocurrent generation in metallic layered nanomaterials

UNAM researchers show photocurrent generation in metallic layered nanomaterials

Photocurrent generation is a key process in optoelectronics. Typically semiconducting materials are used as the non-equilibrium charge carriers created by optical excitation can efficiently be separated to create electric current. However, this process doesn't occur in metallic materials besides a few exceptions as the number of intrinsic charge carriers are far greater than the photoexcited [...]
