Department of Physics Colloquium:
Experimental Materials Physics: From Academia to Battery Startup
Dr. Deniz Bozyigit
Host: Zach Hennighausen
Tuesday, November 28, 2017
114 Dana Research Center
Dr. Deniz Bozyigit is a co-founder of Battrion, a technology startup, that commercializes fast-charging lithium ion batteries. Previously, Deniz was a postdoctoral fellow at MIT in Cambridge and obtained his obtained his PhD in electrical engineering at ETH Zurich. During his PhD he analyzed the physical processes that limit the energy efficiency in nanomaterials used in solar cells and LEDs.
Deniz will talk about his diverse research in Academia, which spans microwave photon counting to solar cells made from nanocrystals. He will share his experiences and lessons learned working at European and US universities and talk about the new experiences in a young startup company.
