Dr. Ronggang CAI has been granted the PhD Award in the field of Material Science for his work entitled “Nanoimprinted ferroelectric polymer layers for organic memory devices and multiferroism“ by the Royal Belgian Society of Microscopy (RBSM vzw).
The RBSM awards up to three prizes annually to members who have successfully defended their PhD thesis on a microscopy-related subject in Belgium in one of the following three areas: Life Sciences, Physics and Material Sciences and Instrumentation and Methods. Theses are judged on their contribution to the advancement of microscopy in Belgium. This include the development of new methods or instrumentation, application of existing methods in new fields of research, use of techniques new to Belgium, or the demonstration of the power of microscopy by extensive use of microscopy data. The term microscopy is used in a broad sense, including all techniques providing information with a spatial resolution better than the naked human eye, and supporting techniques such as image analysis.
