Nathan Hordy won one of the two Best Paper Awards during the ISPC-21 in Cairns, Australia. This award for scientists under 35 recognizes the novelty and importance of the topic to the field, and the quality of the presentation. Nathan’s project focuses on the synthesis and characterization of high-temperature carbon nanotube nanofluids for solar thermal energy harvesting. Co-supervisors are Profs. S. Coulombe and J.-L. Meunier.
This is the 2nd time a PPL graduate student wins such prestigious award. The first was Martin Dionne, in 2009, for his work on novel nanostructured electrodes.
