Nano Energy Lab at the 50th IEEE PVSC – San Juan, Puerto Rico! Ekin wins Best Poster award!

This was a big year for Nano Energy Lab as five students and Prof. Susanna Thon presented at the  50th IEEE Photovoltaic Specialists Conference (PVSC 50). Prof. Susanna Thon presented a plenary talk on “Spatially-Resolved Multi-Modal Spectroscopy for Defect Identification and Parameter Prediction in Solar Cells”. Ekin, Lulin and Sreyas presented posters with Ekin winning a best poster award! Dana and Dhanvini presented their work in oral sessions!

 

Congratulations to Ariana for winning the James F. Bell Award!

This award was established by the Department of Mechanical Engineering in honor of James F. Bell (1914–95), who was a professor and professor emeritus in the Department of Mechanical Engineering from 1979 until his death. During his 50-year career at Johns Hopkins, Professor Bell worked continuously as an experimentalist in the field of nonlinear mechanics and dynamic plasticity, authoring more than 80 research papers and two books. His avocation was music: He played in the Hopkins Symphony Orchestra for more than 20 years. The James F. Bell Award recognizes outstanding research and scholarly achievement in mechanical engineering.

Congratulations to Eric for winning the Muly Family Undergraduate Research Award!

This award supports undergraduate student research and is given annually to an exceptional undergraduate student conducting research in the Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering. It was established by Faye and Emil Muly ’56 in honor of their family, which includes several generations of Johns Hopkins alumni. This year’s recipient is being recognized for significant contributions made in research conducted with Professor Susanna Thon.
