The Transformer

Materials science and engineering professor Junqiao Wu poses for a thermographic portrait outside his office in Hearst Memorial Mining Building in Berkeley, Calif. on Tuesday, Sept. 1, 2020. Instead of detecting visible light, thermographic cameras typically detect radiation in the long-infrared range of the electromagnetic spectrum (roughly 9,000–14,000 nanometers or 9–14 µm), making it possible to see one’s environment through tiny changes in temperature.

Professor Junqiao Wu from the MSE Department is featured in the College of Engineering's magazine, Berkeley Engineer, where Prof. Wu describes his recent research achievements in infrared imaging and radiative heat modulation with phase change materials. Read full story here.
