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.
