Congrats to Grant on graduating cum laude with departmental honors! Grant also won the Noyes Award for excellence in undergraduate physical chemistry research. Well deserved, and congratulations on all of your accomplishments!
Congrats to Madi, Kelly, Morgan, and Michael on giving fantastic presentations at ACS NORM in Portland on Monday.
Michael presented his work on the in situ measurement of UV-induced photodegradation of perovskite nanocrystals; Morgan presented her newest work on using absorbance spectroscopy and her grid-based fitting algorithm to track aggregate composition; Kelly presented his new work on tracking charge transfer rates during the formation of layered organic films; Madi presented her work detailing how dynamic background signals in SSTA can be corrected. Great job, everyone, way to represent UO!
Congrats to Madi on winning a PChem Undergraduate Fellowship! This fellowship will partially fund her work over the summer on her project quantifying heterogeneity in organic films. Well deserved, Madi!
James won a teaching award from the Department of Chemistry and Biochemistry for his excellent work in designing and implementing a new optical microscopy lab for the physical chemistry laboratory course. Great work, James!!
Congrats to James and Michael on the acceptance of their paper ‘Rapid sampling during synthesis of lead halide perovskite nanocrystals for spectroscopic measurement’ into MRS Advances. Great job!
A huge congratulations to Madi, who was awarded a Goldwater Scholarship!! What an accomplishment and validation of all your hard work. Well deserved! Congrats, Madi!
Congrats to James, who presented his TA measurements of perovskite nanocrystals during their synthesis at the Materials Research Society meeting in Phoenix. To our knowledge, this is the first time the excited state dynamics of nascent NCs have been reported. Really exciting results, James!
Congrats to Kelly, Madi, and Morgan, whose project on in situ measurements during molecular aggregation won the Best Poster prize in the “Advances in in situ Techniques for Diagnostics and Synthetic Design of Energy Materials” symposium at the Materials Research Society meeting in Phoenix! Great job!
Big thanks to Kelly, Madi, and Morgan, who did all of the work that we presented at the Ultrafast Bandgap Photonics conference in Washington DC. Great job, team!
A big welcome to Marc, our rotation student for the spring quarter. He will be doing some spectroscopy on organic materials with Kelly and Madi. Looking forward to a great quarter, Marc!
