Congratulations to Dmitriy Boyuk for successfully defending his dissertation titled "Engineering Localized Surface Plasmons in Doped Semiconductor Nanomaterials."
Trent Weiss (second from the left in the picture below) won 1st place at the 2018 Air Products Undergraduate Research Poster Session, beating out more than 25 other undergraduate students. Congratulations!
We welcome Dr. Arslan Shehzad to the lab as our newest postdoc! He hails from Pakistan and completed a Ph.D. in nanotechnology and materials engineering at Sejong University in South Korea. He will be working on a project recently funded by Intel that lies at the intersection of nanowires and 2-D materials.
Congratulations to 1st year student Amy Brummer on being selected for both the NSF (GRFP) and DOD (NDSEG) graduate student fellowships! (In 2018, only 69 NDSEG fellowships were awarded nationwide).
Martin Ek's review article titled "Atomic-Scale Choreography of Vapor−Liquid−Solid Nanowire Growth" will be featured on the cover of the January 2018 issue of Accounts of Chemical Research. Congrats Martin!
The Filler Lab is in search of a postdoc for a new project at the intersection of semiconductor nanowires and 2-D materials. The ideal candidate would have experience in materials synthesis and characterization, and preferably be comfortable with vacuum systems. If you have an interest in such a position and are available to start in the next few months, please email your CV to Prof. Filler.
Trent Weiss was named a 2017/2018 Air Products Undergraduate Researcher. He will receive $1500 to support his research on semiconductor nanowire surface functionalization. Congratulations!
Martin Ek's manuscript titled "Atomic-scale Choreography of Vapor-Liquid-Solid Nanowire Growth" was accepted to Accounts of Chemical Research. He reviews our state-of-the-art understanding of the atomic-scale thermodynamic and kinetic phenomena that control the vapor-liquid-solid growth of semiconductor nanowires. Congratulations!
Amy Brummer joined the Filler lab starting this fall semester. She's co-advised with Eric Vogel from Materials Science and Engineering and will be working on scalable methods to fabricate nanowire-based devices. Welcome, Amy!
Dr. Filler was named the Traylor Faculty Fellow in the School of Chemical & Biomolecular Engineering.
Dr. Filler joined participants of the National Student Leadership Conference (NSLC) at Georgia Tech to talk about the role of failure in science and engineering.
Congratulations to Maritza Mujica and Amar Mohabir for successfully defending their Ph.D. thesis proposals. Next stop: Ph.D.!
The first manuscript from a collaboration between the Filler and McDowell labs at Georgia Tech has been accepted for publication in the Journal of Physical Chemistry C. Titled "Reversible Tuning of the Surface Plasmon Resonance of Indium Tin Oxide Nanocrystals by Gas-Phase Oxidation and Reduction," the work combined in situ infrared spectroscopy and reaction-diffusion modeling to understand the gas phase oxidation and reduction of plasmonic ITO nanocrystals. Weize Hu lead the effort, which included computational contributions from Siwei Guo and TEM imaging from Matthew Boebinger.
A review/perspective paper authored by Profs. Filler, Behrens, and Breedveld, as well as Ph.D. student Maritza Mujica, titled "Process Principles for Large-Scale Nanomanufacturing" has been published online in the Annual Review of Chemical and Biomolecular Engineering. This paper outlines the process needs for translating recent advances in nanoscience to economically viable manufacturing environments.
Ho Yee's paper “Low-Temperature Growth of Axial Si/Ge Nanowire Heterostructures Enabled by Trisilane” has been accepted for publication by Chemistry of Materials. He used a new precursor chemistry to create nanowires containing axial Si/Ge heterostructures, which are useful building blocks for large-area electronic circuits and thermoelectrics.
Amar Mohabir is a recipient of the 2016 Shell Outstanding ChBE TA Award. He received this departmental award based on not only high teaching ratings from his students, but also extensive personalized feedback detailing how he had a positive impact on his students' learning. Congratulations!
