Best Poster Prize at Gordon Conference on Electron Donor-Acceptor Interactions

Last week, Prof. Hutchison presented a poster on our molecular piezoelectric research, “Donor-Acceptor Molecule Piezoelectrics: Electromechanical Materials from the Bottom Up” at the 2012 Gordon Research Conference on Electron Donor-Acceptor Interactions. The work was picked as one of the three best posters at the conference, and he gave a presentation on Thursday night in one of the coveted “poster talk” slots.
