The Use of Dopants to Modulate the Properties of Organic Semiconductors, 2D Materials and Electrodes

short bio

Seth Marder is currently the Georgia Power Chair of Energy Efficiency and Regents’ Professor in the School of Chemistry and Biochemistry and a Professor of Materials Science and Engineering (courtesy) at the Georgia Institute of Technology (Georgia Tech). Dr. Marder received his undergraduate degree in Chemistry from Massachusetts Institute of Technology in 1978 and his Ph.D. from the University of Wisconsin-Madison in 1985. After completing his postdoctoral work at the University of Oxford from 1985–1987, he moved to the Jet Propulsion Laboratory (JPL) at California Institute of Technology (Caltech).
Marder has serves on numerous advisory boards for journals and is the Founding Chair of the Editorial Board for the Royal Society of Chemistry flagship materials journal, Materials Horizons.
He is a Fellow of the American Association for the Advancement of Science (2003), the Optical Society of America (2004), SPIE (2006), the Royal Society of Chemistry (2007), the American Physical Society (2009) the Materials Research Society (2014) and The National Academy of Inventors (2016). He received a American Chemical Society A.C. Cope Scholar Award, and the MRS Mid-Career Award.
seiradakisProf. John Seiradakis, Aristotle University of Thessaloniki, Greece
The Antikythera Mechanism: Decoding an astonishing 2nd century BCE astronomical computer

short bio

John Seiradakis was born in Chania, Crete. He obtained his degree in Physics (1971) from the University of Athens and his M.Sc. (1973) and Ph.D. (1975) from the Victoria University of Manchester.
From 1975 to 1985 he worked as a Post Doc researcher at the Max-Planck-Institute for Radio Astronomy, Bonn, at the University of Hamburg and at the University of California, San Diego. In 1985 he was appointed Associate Professor at the Aristotle University of Thessaloniki and in 1996 full Professor. In 2011 he was elected Director of the Laboratory of Astronomy of the Aristotle University, a position that he held until his retirement in August 2015. In December 2015, he was appointed Professor Emeritus.
His major scientific interests in Astronomy, focus on neutron stars, neutral hydrogen in nearby galaxies, the galactic centre, flare stars, the Sun, the Moon and Archaeoastronomy. He has written 3 course books and has published more than 100 articles in refereed (mainly) and other scientific journals, volumes or conference proceedings. He has also written popular astronomy books and published several tens of articles in newspapers or popular magazines.
He has represented Greece in large European networks (OPTICON, ILIAS, CRAF, etc) and in international resolutions.
In December 2005, the highest EU prize “Descartes” was awarded to the neutron stars research network, PULSE, in which he is a founding member.
He is a member of the Antikythera Mechanism Research Group. Since 2007, he has given more than 200 lectures, public or scientific, in Greece and around the world for the Antikythera Mechanism.
Finally, he has served as Member, Chairman or Director in several national or international scientific Committees or Organizations, including the Greek National Committee for Astronomy and the Hellenic Astronomical Society.
snaithProf. Henry J. Snaith, University of Oxford, UK
Metal halide perovskites: a new class of semiconductors for photovoltaic and optoelectronic devices

short bio

Prof. Henry J. Snaith FRS is a professor of physics at Oxford University and is CSO and Founder of Oxford PV Ltd. His research is focussed on developing new materials for photovoltaics and understanding and controlling the optoelectronic processes occurring within the devices and at heterojunctions. He has made a number of significant contributions to the field of photovolatics research, with the most notable being the discovery of the remarkable PV properties of metal halide perovskites.
He was awarded the institute of Physics Patterson Medal in 2012, named as one of "natures ten" people who mattered in 2013, received the Materials Research Society Outstanding Young Investigator award in 2014, elected as a member of the Royal Society in 2015 , assessed to be the 2nd "most influential scientific mind" in 2016 and will be awarded the Royal Society Kavli Medal and Lecture in 2017.
