Great work is demonstrated by NMG group members at the MRS Fall meeting in Boston, MA. Dr. Babak Anasori gave a talk about his discovery of layered double transition metal MXenes yesterday and Katie Van Aken’s poster was nominated for the Best Poster award from her symposium. Our group members are joined by alumni from across the globe.
Congratulations to all!
Read Prof. Gogotsi’s review article based on his Kavli Lecture delivered at the Spring MRS meeting appeared in the December 2015 issue of MRS Bulletin, available on our publications page.
Congratulations to DNI members, alumni, and partners at Deakin University for their latest paper published in Nature Communications, regarding research supported by the Australian Research Council. This is the latest news on the materials produced from BN nano sheets that have amazing properties and can be used for a variety of applications, from cleaning oil spills to high-temperature composites. The publication is an open access paper which is available to everyone for free downloading.

Congratulations to PhD Student, Katie Van Aken, who was recently announced as a 2015 Korener Family Award recipient in the field of engineering.
Prof. Yury Gogotsi was awarded the Lee Hsun Award Lecture at the Institute of Metal Research (IMR) of the Chinese Academy of Sciences on Nov. 5. The Lee Hsun Lecture Award is named after the former IMR Director H. Lee, who discovered hydrogen embrittlement in steels. According to Prof. Hui-Ming Chen, Editor in Chief of Materials for Energy Storage (Elsevier) and IMR Advanced Carbon Materials Division Director, this award “Honors scientists who have significant impact and made great contribution to the field of materials science and engineering both at home and abroad. It is aiming at continuously and regularly encouraging scientists with great influence on materials science and engineering to visit IMR to accomplish academic communication and cooperation, and promote the establishment of new subject areas.”
Congratulations to Prof. Yury Gogotsi and Prof. Patrice Simon on winning the prestigious international RUSNANO Prize. Read the full press release here.
