On November 28th, the group attended the Chemical Engineering retreat. Tamar and Ziv presented posters accompanied by “flash-talks” about their posters. They both gave excellent talks, and Tamar won the 3rd place award for her poster. The retreat was fun and informative about the diverse research performed in the faculty.
At the end of last month, a 3D Electron Tomography Workshop was organized by both microscopy centers in the Technion, together with Thermo-Fischer scientific. In this two-day workshop, various methods of imaging and 3D visualization were presented.
Prof. Edwin L. Thomas gave an interesting talk about using Slice and View (FIB/SEM) tomography as a tool for visualization of soft matter periodic systems.
Later on, Prof. Segal-Peretz presented about using STEM and EDS tomography for organic and inorganic nano structures.
The whole team was very excited to take presence in the workshop, and had a wonderful experience!
We’d like to start by welcoming Shachar Keren to our group. Shachar is starting his M.Sc. degree studies in the department of Chemical Engineering. You can find out more about Shachar and other members of our group in the “People” section of our site.
In other news, Prof. Segal-Peretz gave an invited talk about “Controlling diffusion and growth in SIS processes – new approaches for porous and multi metal oxide nanostructure fabrication”, at the 1st sequential infiltration synthesis workshop in Milan, Italy as part of the directed self-assembly symposium.
Finally, Rotem’s new paper about growing multiple metal-oxides in block copolymer templates by a simple proccess using SIS was published in Small magazine. You can find the paper here.
This month, Ziv Golany and Prof. Segal-Peretz participated in the Israel Vacuum Society Annual Conference in Haifa. Ziv gave a talk on “Dewetting of polymer film in solvent- non-solvent environment, a new approach for polymer particle patterning”.
Also, two of papers by our group members were published.
First, we would like to congratulate Dr. Olga Kleinerman and the Gazit group for their paper on “Cooperatively Catalyzed Henry Reaction through Directed Metal‐Chitosan Interactions“. Secondly, Dr. Barun K. Barick published an interesting paper on “Tin oxide nanostructure fabrication via sequential infiltration synthesis in block copolymer thin films“.
Good job and congratulations to both of them!
