Kingsley Egbo


Research Activity per Year


Personal Profile

Kingsley Egbo joined NREL's Materials Science Center in November 2022 as a postdoctoral researcher in the Materials Discovery and Design group. At NREL, Kingsley is investigating novel ultrawide bandgap oxide materials for potential applications in optoelectronics, power electronics, and energy. His work focuses on the growth of these materials using physical vapour deposition techniques, their characterization and device processing. Prior to joining NREL, Kingsley worked on molecular beam epitaxy of oxide thin films at Paul Drude Institute for Solid State Electronics, Berlin. He is interested in nanoscale engineering of semiconductor thin films and heterostructures towards developing new device-inspiring materials that combine unique properties and using several techniques to study these properties.

Kingsley completed his bachelor’s degree at Federal University of Technology, Owerri, and master’s degree at Newcastle University. He obtained a doctorate in 2021 from City University of Hong Kong where he worked in the group of Professor Kin Man Yu using band structure engineering and doping to tune optical, electrical, and electronic properties of semiconductor materials.
