Today, PPG held a session titled “Young Innovator’s Showcase” where Steve, Xinfeng, and Paula presented posters on their recent work.
PPG seeks to highlight the innovator’s of tomorrow as part of their larger corporate event: Cultivate to Commercialize.
Well done everyone!
Congratulations to Adam for winning a Kaufman Predoctoral Fellowship for this school year for excellence in physical chemistry.
Well done, Adam!
Congratulations to Ilana for winning a Safford Award for excellence in teaching. As the fourth member of the group to be recognized, she has demonstrated outstanding teaching capability and a willingness to go above and beyond the dimensions of her teaching assignment.
Well done, Ilana!

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.
Last week, Paula presented a poster titled “Investigation of Charge Transport Dynamics via Kelvin Probe Force Microscopy” at the Gordon Research Conference in Lucca, Italy. The conference, titled Electronic Processes in Organic Materials, was a great introduction into the field and she came back with helpful suggestions and feedback on the project.

Group members Steve Owens, Andrey Sharapov, Xinfeng Quan, and Xialing Chen have been accepted to give talks while attending the fall meeting of the American Chemical Society in Philadelphia August 19-23, 2012.
Professor Hutchison will also be giving several talks.
Congratulations! More details on the talks will be posted when available later this summer.
The 6th Annual COPE-Solvay Symposium on Organic Electronics is in Pittsburgh, and the group is presenting 5 posters, covering a range of our research, from organic piezoelectrics to charge transport experiments and simulations and new materials discovery.
