Outstanding Early-Career Research Achievement – shared by Dr. Peter DeCarlo and Dr. Aaron Fafarman
Dr. Fafarman, an assistant professor in the Department of Chemical and Biological Engineering, utilizes nanocrystals as building blocks for electronic and optoelectronic materials, particularly for applications in solar energy conversion, in his research. Starting from these materials, he has demonstrated how to access novel compositions of matter and enable industrially promising fabrications modalities. He is a leader in the study of an emerging photovoltaic material-class known as cesium halide perovskites, as well as in development of low-voltage electrophoretic deposition to synthesize functional electronic materials.
