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.

For the first time, physicists at the University of Basel have succeeded in measuring the magnetic properties of atomically thin van der Waals materials on the nanoscale. They used diamond quantum sensors to determine the strength of the magnetization of individual atomic layers of the material chromium triiodide. In addition, they found a long-sought explanation for the unusual magnetic properties of the material. The journal Science has published the findings.
The use of atomically thin, two-dimensional van der Waals materials promises innovations in numerous fields in science and technology. Scientists around the...
Flexible, organic and printed electronics conquer everyday life. The forecasts for growth promise increasing markets and opportunities for the industry. In Europe, top institutions and companies are engaged in research and further development of these technologies for tomorrow's markets and applications. However, access by SMEs is difficult. The European project SmartEEs - Smart Emerging Electronics Servicing works on the establishment of a European innovation network, which supports both the access to competences as well as the support of the enterprises with the assumption of innovations and the progress up to the commercialization.
It surrounds us and almost unconsciously accompanies us through everyday life - printed electronics. It starts with smart labels or RFID tags in clothing, we...
The human eye is particularly sensitive to green, but less sensitive to blue and red. Chemists led by Hubert Huppertz at the University of Innsbruck have now developed a new red phosphor whose light is well perceived by the eye. This increases the light yield of white LEDs by around one sixth, which can significantly improve the energy efficiency of lighting systems.
Light emitting diodes or LEDs are only able to produce light of a certain colour. However, white light can be created using different colour mixing processes.
Researchers led by Francesca Ferlaino from the University of Innsbruck and the Austrian Academy of Sciences report in Physical Review X on the observation of supersolid behavior in dipolar quantum gases of erbium and dysprosium. In the dysprosium gas these properties are unprecedentedly long-lived. This sets the stage for future investigations into the nature of this exotic phase of matter.
Supersolidity is a paradoxical state where the matter is both crystallized and superfluid. Predicted 50 years ago, such a counter-intuitive phase, featuring...
