Welcome to the MATS Group
We seek to develop novel materials
needed to enhance and enable devices
for a sustainable future.
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.
