The Nazin Lab recently published a letter, “Creation and Annihilation of Charge Traps in Silicon Nanocrystals: Experimental Visualization and Spectroscopy,” in the Journal of Physical Chemistry Letters. These results, authored by Dmitry A. Kislitsyn, Jon M. Mills, Sheng-Kuei Chiu, Benjamen N. Taber, James D. Barnes, Christian F. Gervasi, Andrea Mitchell Goforth, and George V. Nazin, provide a direct visualization of the charge trap formation in individual SiNCs, the level of detail which until now had only been achieved in theoretical studies.

Sam Imfeld has joined the Nazin Lab as an undergraduate researcher. She is a senior Chemistry major, and the Lab is delighted to have her on board. Welcome!
Ph.D. Candidate Ben Taber won the graduate student poster competition at the Pacific Northwest American Vacuum Society Annual Symposium earlier this week for his poster titled, “Particles in Organic Boxes: Scanning Tunneling Spectroscopy of Molecular Electronic Structure.” Congratulations!
Ava Pasnon, an undergraduate from Nova Southeastern University, will be conducting research in the Nazin Lab this summer as part of the Materials Science Institute’s Research Experience for Undergraduates (REU) program. Welcome!
More information about the REU program is available here.
Ben Taber was awarded the prestigious UO Dissertation Research Fellowship for the 2017-18 academic year. This fellowship is designed to support outstanding doctoral students and promote excellence in research at the University of Oregon by providing financial support for exceptional doctoral candidates to complete their dissertations.

Nazin Lab undergraduate researcher William Crowley successfully defended his Honors College Thesis earlier today. His thesis, “Fabrication of Silver Scanning Tunneling Microscope Tips with Acetic Acid,” earned Distinction, an honor awarded to the top ten percent of graduates of University of Oregon’s Robert D. Clark Honors College.
The University of Oregon has awarded Dr. George V. Nazin tenure. Congratulations!
Ben Taber and Christian Gervasi will be attending the upcoming ACS National Meeting in San Francisco. Ben will be giving an oral presentation, “Scanning tunneling microscopy of alkyl-substituted oligothiophenes on Au(111): Real-space visualization of molecular electronic structure,” from 8:10-8:50 am on Sunday, April 2, in the Sutro room of Parc 55. Christian Gervasi will be presenting a poster, “Impact of surface reconstruction on the electronic structure of PbS QD nanocrystals: Experiment and theory,” during the Inorganic Division poster session from 5:30-7:30 PM on Tuesday, April 4 in Hall D of the Moscone Center.
Check out them and their work!
