Duck Young Chung is a staff scientist at Materials Science Division,
Argonne National Laboratory. He studied in Dankook University, Korea,
for his B.S. in chemistry and Kyungpook National University for M.S.
and Ph.D. degrees by 1991. He then joined the group of Prof. Mercouri
Kanatzidis as a postdoc at Michigan State University where later he
worked as a research faculty in the area of inorganic chemistry and
materials science until 2006. His expertise are synthesis, crystal
growth, and characterization of a wide variety of materials including
solid state chalcogenides, intermetallic alloys, and transition metal
coordination compounds as well as development of material synthesis
techniques and methods. He is currently involved in development of
high temperature thermoelectric materials, synthesis and crystal
growth of radiation detector materials, and exploration of a new
class of superconductors.
