Congratulations to the prize winners at Spring E-MRS Symposium T

Materials Horizons and Journal of Materials Chemistry C were delighted to sponsor a best oral presentation and best poster prize at Symposium T: Doping in organic semiconductors: fundamentals, materials and applications at the recent Spring E-MRS 2024 conference which was held in Strasbourg from May 27 – 31.

The winners were decided by a jury of invited speakers and the prizes were presented in an award ceremony at the end of the symposium.

Please join us in congratulating Joost Kimpel and Krzysztof Kotewicz for being selected as the winners! Find out more about them both below:

Krzysztof Kotewicz is currently working as a PhD student in Prof. Ergang Wang’s group at Chalmers University of Technology. His research focuses on conjugated materials for organic electronics, in particular light-emitting electrochemical cells.

Beforehand, he completed BSc Eng degree in chemical technology at Gdansk University of Technology in 2018, followed by a joint Nordic Five Tech Master degree in polymer technology at Technical University of Denmark and Chalmers University of Technology in 2021.

Krzysztof was awarded the poster prize sponsored by Journal of Materials Chemistry C for his poster entitled, ‘Acidochromic behavior of TFA-doped IDT-based conjugated polymers containing azo, imine and vinyl bonds’

Joost Kimpel is a PhD student at Chalmers University of Technology under the supervision of Prof. Christian Müller. Before his PhD, he was awarded a MChem in Chemistry from Oxford University (2019) followed by a MSci in Materials Science and Engineering from Tokyo Institute of Technology (2021). He currently works on the simplifying the synthesis of new polythiophenes bearing polar side chains for a variety of organic electronics applications.

Joost was awarded the presentation prize sponsored by Materials Horizons for his presentation entitled, ‘Synthetically Simple Organic Semiconductors for Thermoelectrics Prepared via Direct Arylation Polymerization’
