Mark Weidman and Jolene Mork received Best Poster Award nominations at the Fall 2013 MRS Meeting in Boston. Mark’s poster “Synthesis of Monodisperse, Air-Stable PbS Nanocrystals via Precursor Stoichiometry Control” was nominated in Symposium W: Next-Generation Inorganic Thin Film Photovoltaics. Jolene’s poster “Reassessment of Forster Theory in CdSe Colloidal Quantum Dot Films” was nominated in Symposium N: Functional Aspects of Luminescent and Photoactive Organic and Soft Materials.
Pooja Tyagi joins the Tisdale Lab as a postdoctoral associate. She comes to us from McGill University, where she studied photophysics of semiconductor nanocrystals with Pat Kambhampati. In the Tisdale Lab, Pooja joins the ultrafast team exploring interfacial exciton dynamics in nanostructured materials and developing a novel ultrafast microscopy technique.
