2018 Nano Letters Young Investigator Lectureship Award Goes to Guihua Yu

Nano Letters and the ACS Division of Colloid & Surface Chemistry are proud to announce that Professor Guihua Yu of University of Texas at Austin, is the winner of the 2018 Nano Letters Young Investigator Lectureship Award. The award honors the contributions of a young investigator who has made major impacts on the field of nanoscience and nanotechnology.

Yu has made significant contributions to rational synthesis and fundamental investigation of low-dimensional semiconductor nanostructures and functional polymer nanostructures with tunable chemical structures/interfaces and unique physical properties for advanced energy/environmental technologies. Some of his most notable research published in Nano Letters to date has focused on how polymer nanoscience fundamentally impacts several key technologies in electronics and energy.

Since joining the UT-Austin faculty in 2012, Yu has established a world-class research program in materials science and nanoscience. His research group has published numerous high-impact papers in various prestigious journals.

Yu will be presenting his research at a symposium and award ceremony during the 2018 Fall ACS National Meeting in Boston, Massachusetts. In the meantime, here are some of his recent articles:
