COPE and GTPN Prof. Zhiqun Lin's New Perovskite Nanocrystals Show Enhanced Durability
New perovskite nanocrystals developed in the labs of COPE and GTPN Professor Zhiqun Lin (Materials Science and Engineering) show enhanced durability by having protective layers of silica and polymer.
Solar Cells from STAMI Members Reach the International Space Station for Testing
Polymer and Perovskite solar cells fabricated in the labs of COPE Prof. Bernard Kippelen (Electrical and Computer Engineering) and COPE, GTPN Prof. Zhiqun Lin (Materials Science and Engineering) have been taken to the International Space Station (ISS) for testing in the harsh space environment as part of the MISSE-12 mission.
STAMI-COPE Co-Director Carlos Silva Elected to the Class of 2019 American Physical Society Fellows
STAMI-COPE Co-Director Carlos Silva, Professor in the School of Physics and the School of Chemistry and Biochemistry, has been elected to the 2019 Class of American Physical Society Fellows "[f]or the groundbreaking development of ultrafast laser techniques for probing the transient photophysics of electro-optical and excitonic materials leading to novel and unique insights into charge-separation and carrier generation in organic photovoltaic systems." Congratulations, Professor Silva!
STAMI-COPE Professor Shannon Yee Developing Thermoelectric Polymers for Personal Climate Control
STAMI-COPE Professor Shannon Yee and his team of Georgia Tech researchers are developing polymer-based thermoelectric (TE) materials for wearable devices to help people feel warmer or cooler on demand. The polymer TE materials could either harvest body heat to generate electricity or be used to produce a cooling sensation by hooking up a flexible battery to the circuitry.
Electrochromic Polymers Advanced in the Lab of GTPN and COPE Professor John Reynolds
A serendipitous discovery by Graduate Student Dylan Christiansen led to polymers that quickly change color from completely clear to a range of vibrant hues — and back again. The work could have applications in everything from skyscraper windows that control the amount of light and heat coming in and out of a building, to switchable camouflage and visors for military applications, and even color-changing cosmetics and clothing. It also helps fill a knowledge gap in a key area of materials science and chemistry.
Safer Electrochromic Inks Developed in STAMI-GTPN Professor Reynolds's Lab
Electrochromic films synthesized in the labs of STAMI-GTPN and STAMI-COPE Professor John Reynolds change their colors with the flick of a switch. Now they can be applied more safely thanks to an innovative chemical process that makes them water soluble. They can be sprayed and printed, instead of being confined behind safety implements to handle volatile and toxic fumes.
STAMI Students Ditullio and Tremblay Win School of Chemistry and Biochemistry Safety Awards
STAMI Graduate Students Brandon Ditullio and Marie-Helene Tremblay recently received the 2019 William Emerson Safety Awards for impactful contributions to the safety culture in the School of Chemistry and Biochemistry. Winners are nominated by members of their research groups and members of the School of Chemistry and Biochemistry. Thanks and Congratulations Brandon and Marie-Helene!
Professor Natalie Stingelin Elected a Materials Research Society Fellow
COPE and GTPN member Natalie Stingelin has been elected a Materials Research Society Fellow for pivotal contributions to the application of classical polymer science tools for the efficient design and processing of organic electronic and photonic materials and devices. Congratulations Natalie!
STAMI Members Recognized as H-Index High Scorers
STAMI Members and Chemistry & Biochemistry Professors Jean-Luc Bredas (COPE, GPTN) and Seth Marder (COPE, GTPN, CRĀSI) have H-index scores greater than 100, a singular feat that is achieved by few researchers.
2018 STAMI Industry Partners Day
Georgia Tech's Center for the Science and Technology of Advanced Materials and Interfaces (STAMI) held its 2018 STAMI Industrial Partners Day and Exposition on Sept. 27-28, 2018 at The Historic Academy of Medicine. The meeting featured talks from leaders in industry and academia, student presentations, and networking opportunities.
