Chuanbing Tang joins Polymer NanoComposite effort

March 27, 2009

Chuanbing Tang currently at the University of California at Santa Barbara will join the Department of Chemistry and Biochemistry and the NanoCenter at the University of  South Carolina. He has developed self-assembled block copolymer templates for nanostructured carbons, including synthesis, characterization and device development.  

He has also been recognized as a Finalist for the 2005 ACS Richard A. Glenn Award from the Fuel Division for the best paper at a national meeting and has received the 2005 ACS Pittsburgh Section Polymer Group Student Award. 

In his post-doctoral position with Ed Kramer and Craig Hawker at the Materials Research Laboratory at the University of California at Santa Barbara he worked on a way to make square, nanoscale, chemical patterns –– from the bottom up ––that may be used in the manufacture of integrated circuit chips as early as 2011. It is called block co-polymer lithography.
