Raymond Tung is a professor in the Department of Physics.
Before joining Brooklyn College, he spent 20 years as a
research scientist at Bell Laboratories. His main research
interest has been in the areas of semiconductor interfaces,
epitaxial growth of electronic materials, electrical and
structural characterizations of materials and interfaces, etc.
Mainly a solid-state experimentalist for most of his career,
Prof. Tung recently tried out his (natural? uncertifiable?
talent in theoretical physics and developed two theories
which demonstrated that simple chemical concepts could offer
explanations to long-standing solid state physics problems,
such as the Schottky barrier height problem and the band offset
problem for semiconductor heterojunctions.
