PhD prize

Congratulations to David Thévenaz, winner of one of the five Swiss Nanotechnology PhD Awards handed out at the Swiss NanoConvention 2017 in Fribourg. David worked for Prof. Christoph Weder’s Polymer Chemistry and Materials group at the Adolphe Merkle Institute and completed his PhD in 2016.

David was recognized for his thesis “Metal-Complex-Containing Luminescent Polymeric Nanoparticles” and his paper “Temperature-responsive low-power light upconverting polymeric nanoparticles”, published in the journal Materials Horizons.

The five prizes, worth CHF 2,000 each, are awarded by the Swiss Micro- and Nanotechnology Network. The aim is to recognize excellent scientific first-author publications published by PhD students in the field of nanotechnology and nanoscience.
