Nanotechnology Researcher Wins Prize for Early Excellence in Physical Organic Chemistry

11.07.2008
Dr. Gino DiLabio, Research Council Officer at Canada's National Institute for Nanotechnology (NINT) in Edmonton, Alberta, has been awarded the 2008 Journal of Physical Organic Chemistry Award for Early Excellence in the Field of Physical Organic Chemistry.

This award is given annually to recognize the accomplishments of an individual working in the field of physical organic chemistry or applying the principles of this field to other areas. At the time of nomination, the recipient must be no more than six years from the beginning of the first independent appointment.

The award was presented at the 32nd Reaction Mechanisms Conference held at the University of North Carolina, Chapel Hill. Dr. DiLabio gave an award presentation entitled “Linear Organic Nanostructures on Silicon Surfaces: A Platform for Studying Single Molecule Physics and Chemistry.” on June 27, 2008.

A member on NINT’s Molecular Scale Devices Group, DiLabio’s work focuses on the modeling of chemical processes leading to nanostructure formation on silicon surfaces. Dr. DiLabio also conducts research in the area of molecular electronics, including efforts to gain an understanding of the mechanism by which localized charged states on silicon surfaces can act as gates in models for molecular transistors.

Originally from Ottawa, DiLabio received his doctorate from Clarkson University, Potsdam, New York. He joined NRC in 2001 as a Research Officer at the Steacie Institute and moved to NINT in 2004. He has authored more than 70 papers and holds two patents. He is also an Adjunct Professor at of the Chemistry Department of Carleton University.

Im Focus: Deep inside Galaxy M87

The nearby, giant radio galaxy M87 hosts a supermassive black hole (BH) and is well-known for its bright jet dominating the spectrum over ten orders of magnitude in frequency. Due to its proximity, jet prominence, and the large black hole mass, M87 is the best laboratory for investigating the formation, acceleration, and collimation of relativistic jets. A research team led by Silke Britzen from the Max Planck Institute for Radio Astronomy in Bonn, Germany, has found strong indication for turbulent processes connecting the accretion disk and the jet of that galaxy providing insights into the longstanding problem of the origin of astrophysical jets.

Supermassive black holes form some of the most enigmatic phenomena in astrophysics. Their enormous energy output is supposed to be generated by the...

Im Focus: A Quantum Low Pass for Photons

Physicists in Garching observe novel quantum effect that limits the number of emitted photons.

The probability to find a certain number of photons inside a laser pulse usually corresponds to a classical distribution of independent events, the so-called...

Im Focus: Microprocessors based on a layer of just three atoms

Microprocessors based on atomically thin materials hold the promise of the evolution of traditional processors as well as new applications in the field of flexible electronics. Now, a TU Wien research team led by Thomas Müller has made a breakthrough in this field as part of an ongoing research project.

Two-dimensional materials, or 2D materials for short, are extremely versatile, although – or often more precisely because – they are made up of just one or a...

Im Focus: Quantum-physical Model System

Computer-assisted methods aid Heidelberg physicists in reproducing experiment with ultracold atoms

Two researchers at Heidelberg University have developed a model system that enables a better understanding of the processes in a quantum-physical experiment...

Im Focus: Glacier bacteria’s contribution to carbon cycling

Glaciers might seem rather inhospitable environments. However, they are home to a diverse and vibrant microbial community. It’s becoming increasingly clear that they play a bigger role in the carbon cycle than previously thought.

A new study, now published in the journal Nature Geoscience, shows how microbial communities in melting glaciers contribute to the Earth’s carbon cycle, a...
