At the 2001 Spring Meeting of the Materials Research Society (MRS) in San Francisco our group has won two major awards. Miss Jie Zou received the Silver Medal in the Best Student Paper competition and Dr. Olga Lazarenkova received the Best Poster Award in the session Advances in Materials Theory and Modeling.
Jie's paper and talk Lattice Thermal Conductivity in Semiconductor Thin Films and Nanowires [PDF] received The Silver Medal in the Best Student Paper Competition. Details of her theoretical research on the heat conduction can be found here [PDF] and in her Journal of Applied Physics paper [PDF].
Details of Olga's poster Electron Energy Spectrum of a Quantum Dot Crystal [PDF]
can be found in the recent paper in Journal of Applied Physics.
