Congratulations to Aaron Muhowski, who defended his PhD thesis on Aug 5, 2019, on new mid-infrared superlattice designs and efficiency improvements. Aaron is beginning a postdoctoral position in Prof. Dan Wasserman's group at the University of Texas at Austin. 

On August 19-21, 2019, three group members gave talks at IEEE Rapid in Destin-Fort Walton Beach, Fl. Cassandra Bogh's talk was titled, "Designing and Characterizing Metalenses for the Increased Light Extraction of MWIR LEDs;" and Weitao Dai' talk, "Enhanced MWIR LED Performance with a Plasmonic Grating;" and John Prineas gave an invited talk: "Mid-Infrared C-SLEDs: Improvements from New Superlattices, Metalens, and Plasmonics."
