Katherine Ann Mazzio was awarded for her poster contribution at the ICT2018 in Caen.

At the International Conference on Thermoelectrics in July in Caen, France, Dr. Katherine Ann Mazzio from the HZB Institute of Nanospectroscopy received a prize for her poster. The conference is the world's largest symposium on thermoelectric materials.

The poster entitled "Hybrid Polymer/Nanoparticle Composites for High-Performance Thermoelectrics" presents a new process developed by the HZB team for the synthesis of hybrid thermoelectric materials. "We are actively pursuing hybrid thermoelectric materials from inorganic nanostructures in conductive polymer matrices for room temperature applications," explains Katherine Ann Mazzio. "In this paper we manipulated the stoichiometry of Ag2-xTe nanocrystals coated with the conductive polymer PEDOT:PSS and followed how changes in stoichiometry influenced structure/property relationships.

The presented work was performed in close collaboration with Danny Kojda and Britta Ryll from Klaus Habicht’s group at HZB. Katherine Ann Mazzio is a post-doctoral research associate, head of the thermoelectrics working group in the Institute for Nanospectroscopy and head of the chemistry and off-synchrotron analytics laboratories at EMIL.

    40 years of research with synchrotron light in Berlin
    Press release _ Berlin, 14 September: For decades, science in Berlin has been an important driver of innovation and progress. Creative, talented people from all over the world come together here and develop new ideas from which we all benefit as a society. Many discoveries – from fundamental insights to marketable products – are made by doing research with synchrotron light. Researchers have had access to this intense light in Berlin for 40 years. It inspires many scientific disciplines and is an advantage for Germany.

    Humboldt Fellow Alexander Gray comes to HZB
    Alexander Gray from Temple University in Philadelphia, USA, is working with HZB physicist Florian Kronast to investigate novel 2D quantum materials at BESSY II. With the fellowship from the Alexander von Humboldt Foundation, he can now deepen this cooperation. At BESSY II, he wants to further develop depth-resolved X-ray microscopic and spectroscopic methods in order to investigate 2D quantum materials and devices for new information technologies even more thoroughly.
