  • Hannah Moon, University of Hawai’i at Mānoa: Using Electroretinograms to Characterize the Retinal Response of Endangered Hawaiian Seabirds to Different Light Spectra


  • Sangjun Jeong, Texas A&M University: Far-red Light and Temperature Interactively Affect Plant Morphology, Yield, and Light Use Efficiency in Indoor Lettuce and Basil Production
  • Chen Mo, Pennsylvania State University: Sidewall Passivation for Micro-LEDs
  • Akila Udage, Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute: Evaluation of 3D Printed Antenna Performance for Lighting Fixtures

The student winners will be recognized at the 19th annual Solid-State Lighting Workshop January 31-February 3, 2022, where they will present their research in the virtual Poster Forum alongside more than 50 top scientists sharing updates on their EERE-funded research projects.

Now in its seventh year, the student poster competition attracted submissions from graduate students across the country. Submissions were judged based on quality of research, novelty, and innovation; impact on the field of solid-state lighting; and presentation quality and clarity.
