Welcome to Dr. Oana Jurchescu,
new Assistant Professor

The Physics Department welcomes Dr. Oana Jurchescu as a new Assistant Professor in experimental condensed matter physics. Dr. Jurchescu received her Ph.D. degree in 2006, from University of Groningen, the Netherlands, under the supervision of Prof. T. T. M. Palstra. From 2007 she was a postdoctoral researcher at Penn State University, and a guest researcher in the Semiconductor Electronics Division at National Institute of Standards and Technology.

Prof. JurchesuProf. Jurchescu's expertise is in the structure and electronic properties of organic semiconductors, as well as the fabrication and characterization of devices for nano and macroelectronics. Her research interests include organic electronics, flexible electronics (organic and organic/inorganic hybrids) and organic spintronics.

The research program that Prof. Jurchescu will start at Wake Forest University will focus on organic and flexible electronics. The research will cover a variety of fundamental and applied research topics on materials and devices for future electronics. The aim is to better understand charge injection and transport, charge trapping and de-trapping, defect generation, migration and lifetime in organic semiconductors. Considerable effort will be concentrated towards investigation of novel materials, with enhanced electrical properties, as well as additional functionality such as ferroelectricity and magnetism.

The program will consist of exciting and interdisciplinary topics of research, providing opportunities for both undergraduate and graduate involvement, and offering an excellent environment to develop skills for becoming competitive researchers in industry or academia.
