In recognition of the 20th Anniversary of International IEEE Symposium on Field-Programmable Custom Computing Machines, the Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE) has highlighted the top 25 papers from the last 20 years of the conference, and Pennergy Member and Penn Professor Andre DeHon has two papers acknowledged on this list. From 1996, MATRIX: A Reconfigurable Computing Architecture with Configurable Instruction Distribution and Deployable Resources. And from 1997, Defect Tolerance on the Teramac Custom Computer.
Jay Kikkawa, Professor of Physics at UPenn and Pennergy Member, is one of the eight 2013 recipients of the Christian R. and Mary F. Lindback Awards for Distinguished Teaching.
The Lindback Awards for Distinguished Teaching at the University of Pennsylvania were established in 1961. Award winners are determined by nominations and recommendations made by faculty and students at the end of each year.
Daeyeon Lee, Pennergy Member, and Assistant Professor in the Department of Chemical and Biomolecular Engineering at Penn, is the recipient of a 3M Nontenured Faculty Award for his proposal, "Bubble-Derived Light-Weight Materials with High Strength and Toughness." This award was created by the 3M company to support new faculty as they work towards tenure.
The National Science Foundation has bestowed a three year grant to Daeyeon Lee's Research Group and Drexel University's Lau Research Group to develop more efficient dye-sensitized solar panels. This exciting endeavor could lead to advances in converting solar radiation into electricity.

Karen Winey, Pennergy Memeber and Materials Science and Engineering/Chemical and Biomolecular Engineering Professor, has been named a 2013 Materials Research Society (MRS) Fellow for "outstanding contributions to the understanding of polymer nanocomposites and ion-containing polymers through rigorous and insightful experiments; distinguished leadership in the materials community."
Pennergy's Dawn Bonnell, who has been elected to the National Academy of Engineering, alongside her UPenn colleagues, Vijay Kumar and Krishna P. Singh.
As the founding Director of the Nano/Bio Interface Center (NBIC), Dawn has made outstanding contributions to research programs that cross disciplinary boundaries, linking engineering and life science in a two-way exchange that advances our understanding of interactions at the interface of physical and biological systems.
Andrew Jackson, Pennergy faculty member and Professor of Practice in the Department of Mechanical Engineering and Applied Mechanics, has been named a Fellow of the Society of Automotive Engineers (SAE) for his "outstanding contributions in the field of tribology and lubrication science." Fellows of the SAE are long-term members who have made a significant impact on society's mobility technology through leadership, research and innovation.

Directed Assembly Research from Pennergy’s Shu Yang and Kathleen Stebe Enhances Control Over Liquid Crystals
A study led by Pennergy Faculty Members Shu Yang (Associate Professor in the School of Engineering and Applied Science’s departments of Materials Science and Engineering and Chemical and Biomolecular Engineering;) and Kathleen Stebe (Engineering’s vice dean for research and professor in Chemical and Biomolecular Engineering) has produced findings that show us a small adjustment to an existing crystals can spontaneously adjust their pattern on demand.
