Congratulations, Bo Tian and Junzhu Li received 2023 Carbon Journal Prize recognitions

25 August, 2023

Bo Tian and Junzhu Li have received notable recognitions from the scientific journal Carbon. Bo Tian received the 2023 Carbon Journal Prize for "an outstanding Ph.D. thesis in carbon materials science and technology." Junzhu Li was awarded a "Special Mention" distinction in the competition.

The journal Carbon is an international multidisciplinary forum for communicating scientific advances in carbon materials. The journal reports on relevant findings related to the formation, structure, properties, behavior and technological applications of carbons—a class of ordered or disordered solid phases containing primarily carbon atoms. 

As part of the prize, Bo Tian will receive $1,000 to support his attendance at the scientific conference of his choice. Junzhu Li will receive an award certificate. 

Additionally, both of them have been invited to join Carbon’s Extended Advisory Board for three years, subject to the journal’s usual peer review process.  A shared passion for carbon materials science.

Both of them graduated from our group in 2022 with Ph.D. degrees in materials science and engineering. Bo Tian is currently a visiting scientist and Junzhu Li is a Postdoc in our group.

Bo Tian’s current research revolves around functionalized 2D Van der Waals heterostructures. As part of this work, he constructs heterostructures with various stacking modes to study some unique fundamental physics phenomena.

Junzhu Li's current research interests include large-area chemical vapor deposition growth of graphene, hexagonal boron nitride, other 2D materials, material characterization and applications.
