September, 2013. Professor Ching Tang has been awarded with the Eduard Rhein Award "for inventing the first highly efficient organic light
emitting diode and further contributions to the development of organic
semiconductor devices". The Eduard Rhein Foundation was founded in 1976 in Hamburg (Germany) by Eduard Rhein. The goal of the foundation is to promote scientific research, learning, arts, and culture. In addition, Prof. Tang had been inducted to the Consumer Electronics (CE) Hall of Fame. The CE Hall of Fame, created in 2000 by the Consumer Electronics Association (CEA), honors visionaries in the consumer
technology industry who advance innovation and build a strong
foundation for others to follow.

Laura Ciammaruchi and Charles Chan have successfully defended their MS. theses. Both Laura and Charles joined our group on 2011, as part of the Master program in Alternative Energy. The title of Laura's thesis was "Degradation Patterns of C60-based Flat Heterojunction Solar Cells". Charles's work was titled "Full Color Patterning of Organic Light Emitting Diodes for High-Resolution Microdisplays using Silicon Nitride Mask". Laura will go back to Italy to complete her Ph.D. in Physics at the Università degli Studi di Tor Vergata in Rome. Charles is currently looking for job opportunities. Our best wishes to both.
Kevin Klubek has received the EAPSI fellowship to conduct research for the summer at the Institute of Functional Nano & Soft Materials (FUNSOM),
Soochow University in Suzhou, Jiangsu, China. The project title is "Blue
Emitters for Organic Light-Emitting Diodes." The host scientist is
Professor Liang-Sheng Liao. Good luck Kevin and enjoy your stay in China!Source:
