Congratulations to the recipient of the 2017 HEMI Seed Grant, Dr. Susanna Thon!
Dr. Thon is an Assistant Professor in the Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering and has worked to create courses for the Whiting School of Engineering at the graduate and undergraduate levels. Her research focuses on nano materials used in optoelectronics, specifically with renewable energy storage and conservation. The goal of her project “Defect Formation in Optoelectronic Nanoparticle Films Under Extreme Illumination Conditions,” is to discover the physical identity and formation mechanisms of the performance-limiting defects in CQD-based solar cell and photodetector films under extreme illumination conditions.
The HEMI seed grants are given each year to fund research in fundamental science associated with materials and structures under extreme conditions. All faculty and researchers at the Johns Hopkins University, as well as Applied Physics Laboratory (APL) Staff, who can serve as Principal and Co-Investigators are eligible to apply.
