Earlier this month the Workshop on Silicon Nanoparticles was held in Bertinoro, Italy. Organised by Dalton Transactions Associate Editor Paola Ceroni (University of Bologna), the workshop gathered world-renowned scientists in the field of silicon nanocrystals and porous silicon, such as Leigh Canham (University of Birmingham, UK), Michael Sailor (University of California, San Diego, US), and Brian Korgel (University of Texas at Austin, US). The workshop was a great success, providing a forum to discuss the latest developments in the field and the most debated aspects related to properties of silicon nanoparticles.
Dalton Transactions was pleased to provide awards to the best Oral and Poster presentations.
The best oral presentation was awarded to Rens Limpens, for his talk entitled “Carrier Dynamics and Mobilities in Doped Silicon Nanocrystals: When Do Free Carriers Matter?”
The best poster presentation was awarded to Sara Angeloni, for her poster entitled “9-10 Diphenyl Anthracene-functionalized Silicon Nanocrystals via covalent and non-covalent method“
