NANOSMAT Prize Giving Ceremony!

Prof. Werner J. Blau has been awarded the prestigious international NANOSMAT 2015 prize.
This prize honours and recognizes international scientists who have shown, during the course of their professional career, outstanding achievements in the fields of nanoscience and nanotechnology.

He said: “I am delighted and humbled to receive such a prestigious award. Scientific research as I understand and practice it combines the fascination about the way our world works with a desire to address and solve important issues of our society, both on a local and global scale. Renewable energy and security of water supply are such topics that nanotechnology can address.”

Dr Blau received the award from 2010 Physics Nobel Laureate A. Geim during a special ceremony at the beginning of the European NANOSMAT conference, which is taking place in Manchester.

This Year Nanosmar Winner is Profesor Werner Blau ! Congratulations!


NANO-ENERGY Conference

NANO-ENERGY Conference

PhD Student John James Magan participated in International Conference on Nanotechnology, Nanomaterials & Thin Films for Energy Application which was held in Manchester this year.

Main topics of the NANO-ENERGY Conference were: use of nanotechnology for energy applications, energy harvesting (solar cells, solar thermal, thermoelectric) or energy storage (fuel cells, batteries, supercapacitors).

Topics covered ranged from nanomaterial synthesis and characterisation to device engineering.
