The past years, the LCP group has published several articles in different journals and proceedings. The LCP group also has a long tradition on being present at the most important liquid crystal conferences.
This has resulted in the following awards :
Caspar Schreuer wins the Enzo Ferroni Award 2014
Caspar Schreuer has won the Enzo Ferroni Award 2014, presented at the 28th annual meeting of the European Colloid and Interface Science Society.
The prize awards the best oral presentation given during the meeting by a young scientist and acknowledges the top level scientific activity of young researchers in the field of colloid and interface science.
Yi Xie wins the Chinese Government Award for Outstanding Self-financed Students Abroad
The China Scholarship Council has awarded the 2013 Chinese Government Award for Outstanding Self-financed Students Abroad to Yi Xie.
