David Lockwood

David Lockwood

The Electrochemical Society values professional and volunteer achievement in the multi-disciplinary sciences. The ECS awards reflect the professional recognition of peers. At meeting plenary sessions, participants from every symposia come together to recognize award winners—some of the greatest minds in the field—and learn about their latest research.

ECS Fellow David J. Lockwood received the Gordon E. Moore Award for Outstanding Achievement in Solid State Science and Technology at the plenary session of the 235th ECS Meeting. This award recognizes outstanding contributions to the fundamental understanding and technological applications of solid state materials, phenomena, and processes. Lockwood is a physicist and researcher emeritus at the National Research Council of Canada. His research centers on the optical properties of low-dimensional materials and focuses on Group IV and III-V semiconductor nanostructures. Lockwood presented “Silicon-Based Photonic Integrated Circuits: The Quest for Compatible Light Sources” at the 235th ECS Meeting Plenary Session. (more…)

Luis Alvarez: 2019 SMEQ Winner

LUIS MANUEL ALVAREZ CERDA

LUIS MANUEL ALVAREZ CERDA received the prize for the best doctorate poster.

The XXXIV National Congress of the Mexican Society of Electrochemistry (SMEQ) and 12th Meeting of the ECS Mexico Section—held this June in Santiago de Querétaro, Mexico—honored Luis Manuel Alvarez Cerda for his work, titled, “Effect of the Polymerization Synthesis Temperature on the Hydrophilic/Hydrophobic Balance in Polyaniline Deposits (PANI) on an Anion Exchange Membrane.”

Each year, SMEQ hosts a poster session which awards prizes by degree (bachelor’s/master’s/doctorate). Alvarez took home the main prize for the best doctorate poster, which includes the opportunity to present at a future ECS biannual meeting.

About Luis

Luis Manuel Alvarez Cerda, chemist since 2005, received his master’s degree in chemistry in 2007. In 2008, the chemistry company Igcar de México/Produquímicos Industriales hired Luis Alvarez to work in the L&D department where he developed more than 30 new products and more than 50 new raw materials until 2017.
