Yongfeng Lu highlighted for carbon nanostructure process

28 February 2012

SPIE Fellow Yongfeng Lu, LYongfeng Lu JPEGott Professor of electrical engineering at the University of Nebraska, Lincoln, was noted in a university publication for his research team's work toward developing several unique processes that use lasers to make precise carbon nanostructures.

Lu is working towards discovering fast and cost-effective ways to produce carbon nanostructures used in everyday materials such as sunglasses and computer chips.

Lu is the author of a paper titled "Fiber-optics Raman probe based on single-crystal sapphire fiber" to be presented next month at SPIE Defense, Security, and Sensing, and has published nearly 140 papers in the SPIE Digital Library. He has chaired the conference Laser Precision Micromachining, and served for several years as chair of the SPIE Photonics West conference on Laser-based Micro- and Nanopackaging and Assembly.
