UNT is leading a consortium to further the science and applications of emerging semiconducting materials toward electronic, photonic and sensing technologies, along with collaborators at the University of Texas at Arlington, University of Arkansas at Pine Bluff and two U.S. Department of Energy national labs. The Consortium on Sensing, Energy-efficient Electronics, Photonics with 2D materials and Integrated Technologies (SEEP-IT) will receive $1 million annually over the next five years from the U.S. Department of Energy's National Nuclear Security Agency. PACCAR Professor of Engineering Anupama Kaul is principal investigator for the consortium. Other UNT faculty serving as co-PIs are Yuankun Lin, professor of physics, and Pamela Padilla, vice president for research and innovation.
