Congrats to Chase on publishing his research in Inorganic Chemistry! This was a culmination of his Master’s Thesis and a terrific example of controlling one-electron vs two-electron transfer reactions. Looking forward to many more publications in this area. https://pubs.acs.org/doi/full/10.1021/acs.inorgchem.9b02430
Soumen, Alex, Amanda, Motiur, and Noah presented their latest research and recruited new students to the Auburn graduate program at SERMACS 2019 in Savannah, GA.
Byron traveled to Atlanta, GA to discuss the groups research on delafossite materials at the National Electrochemical Society Meeting. Thanks to the Georgia Local Section for the invitation to speak!
Amanda successfully defended here oral exam. She is now a Ph.D. candidate! Well done!
The group gathered at the Farnum house to celebrate the summer and Chase’s Masters graduation. It was also Olivia’s first of many group parties.
Congrats to Chase on his successful defense of his Master’s thesis! We will greatly miss his knowledge and presence in the lab. We wish him the best of luck on his move to Africa!
Another great week of teaching solar energy conversion and storage to high school students at Auburn’s Summer Science Institute. Students tested the photovoltaic properties of amorphous silicon solar cells and then built Cu/Zn batteries to store their solar energy. Batteries were then discharged to power an LED. This year, we got the disco ball to light up through multiple batteries! Check out the video below.
