Our recent PhD graduate Dr. Talha Erdem has been awarded with the prestigious Newton International Fellowship for conducting postdoctoral research at the University of Cambridge, UK. Dr. Erdem will work together with Dr. Erika Eiser in Cavendish Laboratory on the DNA-driven self-assembly of colloidal nanocrystals and controlling the optical features of these self-assembled superlattices in real-time.
Talha Erdem, PhD candidate in the Department of Electrical and Electronics Engineering, has been selected as one of the recipients of the IEEE Photonics Society 2016 Graduate Student Fellowships in the field of photonics, lasers and electro-optics.
Professor Demir assigned as a Guest Editor of an Issue of the IEEE JOURNAL OF SELECTED TOPICS IN QUANTUM ELECTRONICS (JSTQE) on Semiconductor Nanocrystal Optoelectronics. The IEEE Journal of Selected Topics in Quantum Electronics (JSTQE) invites manuscript submissions in the area of Semiconductor Nanocrystal Optoelectronics. The purpose of this issue of JSTQE is to highlight recent progress and trends in the optoelectronic characteristics and applications of crystalline semiconductor nanoparticles. Submission Deadline: December 1, 2016
Professor Demir has received National Research Foundation – NRF Investigatorship Award, Class 2016
