Caroline McEnnis ’12 and Lindsey Lindamood ’13
Our relationship started in the lab as coworkers helping one another set up experiments and repair equipment, and turned into an irreplaceable friendship. Not only does the Materials Science Department provide us with valuable lab experience and exciting travel opportunities to conferences in California, Hawaii, Puerto Rico, and the Czech Republic, it also contains a very close knit group of people that genuinely care and support one another making for a much more enjoyable graduate experience.
Caroline McEnnis and Lindsey Lindamood worked for Professor Jim Spicer in the Extreme Photon Engineering Laboratory operating high energy laser systems. Their research focused on femtosecond laser interactions with materials and plasma formation, and laser generation of ultrasound for nondestructive testing of fatigued materials for structural health monitoring and prognosis.
