Tim Wernicke, Technische Universität Berlin
The 2016 Harold M. Manasevit Young Investigator Award was presented at ICMOVPE to Tim Wernicke, Technische Universität Berlin, Institute of Solid State Physics, for extensive and significant contributions in the MOVPE growth of low-defect density, non-polar and semi-polar III-nitrides for blue and green emitters, as well as AlGaN heterostructures for deep ultraviolet LEDs.
Wernicke was one of six Plenary Speakers at this year’s ICMOVPE Conference.
The Harold M. Manasevit Young Investigator Award is an international award that recognizes the exceptional technical contributions of a young investigator working in the Metalorganic Vapor Phase Epitaxy (MOVPE) technical area, with the first award being presented at ICMOVPE-XVI in Busan, Korea, May 20-25, 2012. The award is named in honor of Harold M. Manasevit, pictured at right, November 1, 1927—March 25, 2008.
