Dr Mohsen Rahmani’s recent work has led to the development of novel semiconductor nano-crystals that can be fabricated on any glass surface to allow human eyes to see in the dark. The Australian Academy of Science has now recognised Dr Rahmani’s scientific excellence in research by awarding him a runner-up prize as one of the top three Australian ranked applicants for the APEC Science Prize for Innovation, Research and Education (ASPIRE) in Australia. In addition, he received a certificate from Senator the Hon Arthur Sinodino, Minister for Industry, Innovation and Science.

Since 2011, the annual ASPIRE Prize has recognised scientists under the age of 40 who are working in APEC economies and who have demonstrated a commitment to excellence in scientific research and cooperation with scientists across other APEC economies.
