Keri won a prize for her talk in the Physical and Analytical Chemistry section of the Southeastern Undergraduate Research Conference (SURC), which was held on February 7th at the University of Alabama. She presented data on her project binding porphyrins to core/shell gold/CdS and gold/ZnS nanoparticles to enhance their extinction coefficients.
On December 8, 2014 Danielle successfully defended her Ph.D. dissertation entitled:
“Exploring Exciton and Trap State Recombination Dynamics in Cadmium Sulfide Quantum Dots.”
In her these, Danielle successfully built a compelling picture to describe the states involved in excitation dynamics in these materials. Stay tuned for an article on CdS in the coming months.
