When studying extremely fast reactions in ultrathin materials, two measurements are better than one. A new research tool invented by researchers at Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory (LLNL), Johns Hopkins University and the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) captures information about both temperature and crystal structure during extremely fast reactions in thin-film materials.More
Michael Grapes Receives Silver Award at 2014 MRS Spring Meeting
Congratulations to Michael Grapes, a graduate student researcher in Dr. Tim Weihs’ group, who was selected as a recipient of a Silver Award at the 2014 MRS Spring Meeting! Michael received his award for his presentation titled In situ nanocalorimetry with time-resolved electron microscopy for the study of rapid phase transformations.
According to the Materials Research Society’s website, MRS Graduate Student Awards are intended to honor and encourage graduate students whose academic achievements and current materials science research display a high level of excellence and distinction. MRS seeks to recognize students of exceptional ability who show promise for significant future achievement in materials research and education.
