2013 Kevin Nangoi

Kevin Nangoi won an Edmond G. Franklin Scholarship. His research advisor is Professor James Kakalios and his research focuses on the electrical properties of novel mixed phase amorphous silicon and germanium nanocrystalline (abbreviated as nc-Ge/a-Si:H) thin films. Kevin's recent project was investigating the conductivity hysteresis behavior observed on nc-Ge/a-Si:H thin films. He plans to use the money to cover his undergraduate tuition. Kevin is originally from Indonesia.

2014 Kevin Nangoi

Kevin Nangoi won the Hagstrum Award. He works with Professor James Kakalios to research the electrical properties of novel mixed phase amorphous silicon and germanium nanocrystalline (abbreviated as nc-Ge/a-Si:H) thin films. Kevin's senior honors thesis studied the novel photo-induced conductivity enhancements in nc-Ge/a-Si:H thin films. He will use the award to aid in his move to Ithaca, NY to pursue a Ph.D. in physics at Cornell University. Kevin is originally from Indonesia.
