The Pierre Süe Prize 2015 has been awarded to Dr. Daniel Linot, Institut de Recherche et Développement sur l'Énergie Photovoltaïque (IRDEP), Chatou, France, by the Société Chimique de France (SCF, French Chemical Society). The prize recognizes a French chemist whose work is acclaimed on an international level. It was presented during a ceremony on May 26, 2016, in Caen, France.

Dr. Lincot is honored for his outstanding contributions to photovoltaics research. His research interests include the electrochemical synthesis of semiconductors, thin film solar cells based on copper indium diselenide, and electrodeposition technologies.

Daniel Lincot studied at the engineering college ESPCI-ParisTech, France, where he received his Ph.D. for work on the production of solar cells based on cadmium telluride. He joined the École Nationale Supérieure de Chimie de Paris in 1980 to work on the photoelectrochemistry of semiconductors. In 2005, Dr. Lincot and Olivier Kerrec founded IRDEP in Chatou, France. Today, Dr. Lincot is Director of Research at the National Centre for Scientific Research (CNRS), specializing in the field of photovoltaics, and Director of IRDEP.

Among other honors, Dr. Lincot has received the Electrodeposition Division Research Award from the Electrochemical Society in 2013, the Charles Eichner Medal from the Société Française de Métallurgie et de Matériaux (SF2M) in 2011, and the CNRS Silver Medal in 2004.

I always remain very curious about the photovoltaic cell. When I was a student of chemistry I understood it very well. Therefore I can understand what kind of innovation could be occured with the research of photovoltaic cell. I want to congratulate this for achieving this kind of success in the field of chemistry.
