Three Graduate Students received Yan Huo *94 Fellowship

Three graduate students have been awarded the Yan Huo *94 Graduate Fellowship in Electrical Engineering: Yushan Liu, advised by Prateek Mittal, Prashanth Venkataram, advised by Alejandro Rodriguez, and Ross Kerner, advised by Barry Rand.  The fellowship is for the 2017 - 2018 academic year and is used to support post-general exam PhD students.

Ross Kerner selected as 2018 Siebel Scholar in Energy Science

EE Graduate Student Ross Kerner has been selected as a 2018 Siebel Scholar in energy science.

Breakthrough could launch organic electronics beyond cellphone screens

An international team of researchers including Princeton (Prof. Antoine Kahn, graduate students Xin Lin, Kyung Min Lee, Michael A. Fusella, and Fengyu Zhang) have used ultraviolet light to split molecules that had been added to a semiconductor. The reaction involves transferring an electron from the added molecule to the semiconductor. This process, called doping, results in a surprisingly stable structure and improves the conductivity of the semiconductor dramatically. The discovery points the way to more widespread use of an advanced technology generally known as organic electronics.

Rand develops new LED lighting technology with self-assembling particles

Prof. Barry Rand, postdoctoral researcher Zhengguo Xiao and Graduates Student Ross Kerner and Lianfeng Zhao have developed new LED technology by refining the manufacturing of light sources made with crystalline substances known as perovskites, a more efficient and potentially lower-cost alternative to materials used in LEDs found on store shelves.
