Faculty Commons, A Center for Teaching, Learning, Scholarship and Service coordinates all professional development, grants and assessment activities of faculty at New York City College of Technology. Faculty Commons adopts a programmatic approach to professional development and operates as a faculty resource and think tank where members collaborate on a variety of projects to shape curriculum, pedagogy and assessment.
The Office of Sponsored Programs (OSP) helps faculty and administrators compete for and win grants that strengthen the intellectual climate and improve the learning environment at City Tech. The office provides notices of grant opportunities and works with faculty and administrators over the life-cycle of a grant – from concept development through close-out.
The Professional Activity Report and Self-Evaluation (PARSE) is the documentation of a faculty member’s accomplishments during each academic year and cumulatively, in the three principal areas of teaching, scholarly and professional growth, and service. The PARSE serves as the basis for the annual evaluation. It is also provides faculty with an instrument to present to departmental and college review committees for reappointment, tenure, and promotion.

2D materials in the ultraclean limit: basic science and applications
Presented by: Prof. James Hone
New York, NY, USA
Thursday, March 02 at 1:00 PM Namm, Room 823
Two-dimensional materials offer a wide range of outstanding properties but are highly sensitive to disorder from the environment. We have developed a ‘van der Waals transfer’ technique to encapsulate graphene within crystalline h-BN with nearly perfect interfaces, and an ‘edge contact’ technique to achieve electrical contact to the encapsulated channel. Using these and related techniques, we can study 2D materials and applications in the ultraclean limit. This talk will summarize recent results in four areas:  Demonstration of negative refraction at graphene p-n junctions;  Tunable interactions and evidence for exciton condensation in double-layer heterostructures of bilayer graphene;  graphene light emitters; and  approaching the intrinsic photoluminescence linewidth in 2D semiconductors.
