Siddha Pimputkar receives Lehigh University’s Lehigh Early Career Award for Distinguished Teaching award for his innovative teaching methods and curriculum development he implemented in multiple courses he has taught since joining Lehigh.
Siddha Pimputkar is excited to serve as the ACCGE Program co-Chair with Prof. Balaji Raghothamachar and Conference co-Chairs Profs. Michael Dudley and Partha Dutta for the American Conference for Crystal Growth and Epitaxy in 2023 in Tucson.
Siddha Pimputkar is the recipient of the 2021 American Association for Crystal Growth (AACG) Young Scientist Award! As winner of the professional association’s Young Scientist Award, Pimputkar will give a plenary talk on “Enhancing and Enabling Single Crystal Growth of Group-III and Novel Nitrides” at the 22nd American Conference on Crystal Growth and Epitaxy (ACCGE-22) and 20th US Workshop on Organometallic Vapor Phase Epitaxy (OMVPE-20), which will be held virtually August 2-4, 2021.
Siddha Pimputkar has been elected for a four-year term to the American Association for Crystal Growth (AACG) Executive Committee. Excited and grateful for the opportunity to better service the crystal growth community!
Very exciting news: PI Siddha Pimputkar was awarded the prestigious NSF CAREER for his proposed work on a new synthesis approach for the realization of a wide array of nitride materials in single crystal form! Even more reason to anxiously await completion of the lab construction to start ramping up impactful work for the nitride community.
Exciting new synthesis approach for nitrides proposed as part of the PI’s CAREER proposal is now IP protected and moving forward towards a formal patent application! Will be the first in many technologically and industrial important IP work coming out of this group laying the foundation for an inexpensive, high-yield synthesis process for single crystal nitrides, including but not limited to cubic BN, hexagonal BN, GaN, AlN and its ternary alloys in bulk form.
