Nominations are due by December 15 for two ECS Corrosion Division awards :

 ECS Corrosion Division Morris Cohen Graduate Student Award

Aria Kahyarian, 2019 Morris Cohen Graduate Student Award winner

The Corrosion Division Morris Cohen Graduate Student Award was established in 1991 to recognize and reward outstanding graduate research at the Masters or PhD level in the field of corrosion science and/or engineering. The award—a framed certificate and $1,000—is open to graduate students who have successfully completed all requirements for their degrees, as testified by their advisors, within a period of two years prior to the nomination submission deadline.

Aria Kahyarian received the 2019 Corrosion Division Morris Cohen Graduate Student Award at the 236th ECS Meeting. There he presented his award talk, “Active Metallic Corrosion in Weak Acid Solutions: A Unified Mechanistic View to Cathodic Reactions.” Aria Kahyarian earned his BSc in chemical engineering from Sharif University of Technology in 2011. In 2018, he received his PhD in chemical engineering from Ohio University under the direction of Professor Srdjan Nesic at the Institute for Corrosion and Multiphase Flow Technology.

2019 ECS Young Author Awards

Jan Schwämmlein and Jiancheng Yang won the ECS 2019 Young Author Awards.  The awards were presented at the 236th ECS Meeting in Atlanta, GA, on October 13-17, 2019. Schwämmlein received the Norman Hackerman Young Author Award for his paper, “Origin of Superior HOR/HER Activity of Bimetallic Pt-Ru Catalysts in Alkaline Media Identified via Ru@Pt Core-Shell Nanoparticles.” The prize, which honors corrosion expert Norman Hackerman, is given to the best paper published in the Journal of The Electrochemical Society in the previous year. Yang received the Bruce Deal and Andy Grove Young Author Award for his paper, “2300V Reverse Breakdown Voltage Ga2O3 Schottky Rectifiers.” This award, established in honor of semiconductor industry pioneers Andy Grove and Bruce Deal, recognizes the best paper published in the ECS Journal of Solid State Science and Technology in the previous year. The two young authors’ articles are free to read. They join a distinguished group of scientists; Stanley M. Whittingham, co-winner of the 2019 Nobel Prize in Chemistry, won the ECS Young Author’s Award in 1971.
