In recognition of her significant studies on the growth and characterization of zincsulfoselenide single crystals. Her findings provided the data on which most of today’s great stride on the development and application of ZnSe in devices especially in short wavelength LED’s electroluminescent panels, approved optical waveguides, photovoltaic cells and even the most recent blue laser semiconductor diodes are based.
