Dr. Abdallah Ougazzaden, professor in the Georgia Tech School of Electrical and Computer Engineering (ECE), director of Georgia Tech-Lorraine, and co-president of the Lafayette Institute, was recently recognized by the journal Scientific Reports, for having one of the “Top 100 Read Physics Papers for Scientific Reports in 2017.”
Kudos are shared with co-authors Taha Ayari, Chris Bishop, Matthew Jordan, Suresh Sundaram, Xin Li, Saiful Alam, Youssef El Gmili, Gilles Patriarche, Paul L. Voss, and Jean Paul Salvestrini for their research article, ‘Gas sensors boosted by two-dimensional h-BN enabled transfer on thin substrate foils: towards wearable and portable applications’
The research resulted from a collaboration between the Georgia Institute of Technology, School of Electrical and Computer Engineering at Georgia Tech-Lorraine, GT-CNRS UMI 2958, Institut Lafayette, and the Centre de Nanosciences et de Nanotechnologies, CNRS, Université Paris-Sud, Université Paris-Saclay, C2N.
With over 3,000 physics papers published in 2017, a position in the “Top 100 in Physics” in Scientific Reports is a significant achievement. The paper presents a new approach for GaN-based sensor design that opens new avenues for sensor improvement via transfer to more suitable substrates, and is promising for next-generation wearable and portable opto-electronic devices in many different fields, such as energy, medicine, and transportation.
