October 2019: Congratulations to Emily! Her paper describing triplet fusion photon upconversion using Silicon Quantum Dots is accepted by Nature Chemistry. This paper represents a collaboration between our group and Ming Lee Tang's group and Lorenzo Mangolini's group at UC Riverside.
October 2019: 1st year graduate student Cam Li joins the group. Welcome to Texas Cam!
September 2019: The group welcomes two new members, postdoc Dr. Max Verkamp from the Vura-Weis group and graduate student Danielle Cadena from the Caram lab. Welcome to Texas!
September 2019: Congratulations to Emily for being named a recipient of a Fellowship from DOE's Office of Science Graduate Student Research (SCGSR) Program. Emily will be headed to NREL to complete an internship there in Spring 2020! You can read more about Emily's fellowship here.
September 2019: Mike's paper describing how we use two-dimensional electronic spectroscopy to follow energy migration in quantum dot solids is accepted by J. Phys. Chem. Lett.! Congrats to Mike on publishing the final chapter of his thesis!
July 2019: Danny and Sean head to the International Conference on Photochemistry held at CU Boulder where Sean discusses the group's work on quantum dot mediated triplet energy transfer and Danny presents his work using electronic sum frequency generation to look at organic semiconductor interfaces.
June 2019: The group, together with Michael Rose at UT Austin and Joel Eaves at CU Boulder, is awarded a grant by the W. M. Keck Foundation to develop interfaces for extracting energy from singlet fission materials. We are incredibly grateful for this support of our research. You can check UT's coverage of the award here.
