The group welcomes two new graduate students: Qixuan Hu and Xi Wang. Qixuan got his BS in Chemical Engineering from University of Maryland in 2020, he will work on polymers and materials chemistry; Xi got his BS in Materials Science and Engineering from Beijing Institute of Technology in 2020, he will work on perovskite materials and devices. Welcome to the group!
Our work on halide perovskite solar cell stability and manufacturing is recognized by American-Made Solar Prize, a contest organized by Department of Energy and National Renewable Energy Laboratory. The team is lead by Prof. Letian Dou, Prof. Brett Savoie and Prof. Jianguo Mei. Watch an excellent movie prepared by Aidan: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=UwS5OkQ6yZQ&feature=youtu.be
Enzheng’s review paper on halide perovskite heterostructures have been published in Accounts of Materials Research. This work is highlighted as an inside cover. Congratulations! This is a summary of our recent work in the past three years. Credits go to all my group members and collaborators. And a big thank you to Prof. Jiaxing Huang for the invitation!
Akriti is selected to receive the Arvind Varma Fellowship in recognition of her great contribution in fundamental study of anion interdiffusion in perovskite heterostructures and her leadership in teaching and mentoring. Only 1 recipient each year from the school, in memorial of Prof. Arvind Varma, a giant in chemical engineering. Congratulations!
Ajeet Singh from IIT Delhi Department of Chemistry (with Prof. Sameer Sapra) is selected for the India’s Science and Engineering Research Board (SERB) Overseas Visiting Doctoral Fellowship (OVDF) and will stay with us from May 2021 to May 2022. Congratulations and look forward to working together!
Akriti is selected for the Women in Chemical Engineering (WIC) Travel Award by AIChE. She will attend the AIChE 2020 conference and give a talk in Area 8E Electronic and Photonic Materials this fall. Congratulations!
Dr. Dou was interviewed with Inside Indiana Business talking about perovskite stability and perovskite technology for solar industry. Read the story here.
Our joint publication with Prof. Libai Huang group in The Journal of Chemical Physics has been selected as the 2020 Editor’s Choice article. Thanks for the great recognition. Congratulations to the team! Read the paper here.
New around of the prestigious Lillian Gilbreth Postdoc Fellowship has been announced! If you are interested in joining us and working in a multidisciplinary research environment, please apply at: https://engineering.purdue.edu/Engr/Research/GilbrethFellowships
We are excited to have a new postdoc fellow Dr. Shuchen Zhang to join the group. Shuchen got his PhD from Peking University in Physical Chemistry. Before joining Purdue, he spent one year as a postdoc fellow with Prof. Gabor Somorjai at UC Berkeley. Welcome to the group and look forward to working together!
