Layer by Atomic Layer – MOCVD Growth for a Carbon Neutral Society: A Symposium to honor Dr. Russell Dupuis and Dr. Daniel Dapkus, recipients of the 2022 Benjamin Franklin Medal in Electrical Engineering

May 4 at 9:00 AM - 1:00 PM

The School of Engineering and Applied Science is honored to co-sponsor, with Drexel University and the Franklin Institute, a symposium to honor the recipients of the 2022 Benjamin Franklin Medal in Electrical Engineering. Dr. Russell Dupuis and Dr. Daniel Dapkus join a list of many distinguished laureates of the Franklin Institute – of these over 90 laureates have later received the Nobel Prize.
