The College of Science is now accepting nominations for Undergraduate Summer Research Stipends for summer 2018. This program allows undergraduates to do paid research with College of Science faculty over the summer. The value of the stipends is $5,000 each. Faculty may nominate students from any...
Chemistry Ph.D. candidate Elahe Moazzen has won a 2018 Ludo Frevel Crystallography Scholarship and will receive $2,500 to assist in the continuation of her crystallographic research. She is one of 10 students awarded this year, selected on a competitive basis by the International Centre for...
Dirk Guldi, professor and chair of physical chemistry at Friedrich Alexander University, gave a lecture, “Nanostructured Carbon Materials and their Applications,” on Monday, February 5. Guldi focuses on the application of spectroscopic and microscopic techniques to a variety of molecular systems...
Siamak Shokri, Ph.D. candidate in chemistry, won a Best Poster Award at the 27th Inter-American Photochemical Society Meeting in Sarasota, Florida, January 2-5. His adviser is Jean-Luc Ayitou, assistant professor of chemistry. Shokri won for his poster “Synthesis, Optoelectronic...
Jean-Luc Ayitou, assistant professor of chemistry, has won the Faculty Early Career Development (CAREER) Award from the National Science Foundation, Division of Chemistry: Chemical Structure, Dynamics and Mechanisms. The award, totaling $650,000 for five years, is for his research on novel...
Russell Betts, dean of the College of Science and Distinguished Professor of Physics, recently honored four people with Dean’s Excellence Awards. Senior Research Faculty: Fred Hickernell, professor of applied mathematics and director of the new Center for Interdisciplinary Scientific...
Assistant Professor of Chemistry A. Jean-Luc Ayitou has published the article “Photon Upconversion Using Baird-Type (Anti)Aromaticity Quinoidal Naphthalene Derivative as a Sensitizer” in the Journal of Physical Chemistry C. Photon upconversion is the conversion of low-energy radiation to...
Much like weather forecast models predict the trajectory of a hurricane, computational tools known as molecular dynamics simulations predict the microscopic motion of an interacting system of molecules. Molecular dynamics has sometimes been referred to as a “computational microscope” because it...
Xiyun (Richard) Guan has received a three-year, $360,000 grant from the National Science Foundation for his project “Solid-state nanopore-based MMP/ADAM profiling for early cancer detection.” The award is to develop next-generation biomaterials to help detect and treat cancer. Guan develops...
Carlo Segre, Duchossois Leadership Professor of Physics and interim chair of the Department of Chemistry, recently had his endowed chair renewed for another three-year term. The chair honors faculty who are exemplary in scholarship, education, and service. As Duchossois Leadership Professor, Segre...
