Arief Wibowo joined Argonne National Laboratory in September 2011 as postdoctoral appointee. His current research is to explore the potential of new heavy element, wide band gap chalcogenide/halide-based semiconductors for room temperature X- and g-ray detectors. His main project is to synthesize large crystals of these chalco-halide compounds using Bridgman, Czochralski, and flux method and characterize their spectroscopic and charge transport properties. Arief obtained his bachelor and master degree from Michigan State University in Chemical Engineering and Material Science, respectively. His passion in hands-on research have led him finish PhD in inorganic chemistry in 2011 at University of South Carolina under Prof. H.-C. zur Loye’s supervision. His PhD research was in the development of s2p0-containing main group metal-organic coordination polymers for second harmonic generation, ferroelectric, and photoluminescence applications.
