Congratulations to Alex Schachtner and Carly Wright, who both graduated with a Bachelor of Science in Physics from the UO on Monday!
Congratulations to Jordan and Kat for the birth of their baby, Everly Mae Chess! She was born at 8:12 am 5/5/15, and is healthy as can be and a happy little baby. Finally, we’ll have somebody in the lab with small enough hands to pick up nanogratings with her fingers!
Congratulations to Eryn Cangi, who was accepted to do research at Northwestern University’s Center for Interdisciplinary Exploration and Research in Astrophysics with Dr. Daniel Abrams. She will be working on applications of mathematical models of synchronicity to problems in orbital dynamics of exoplanet systems and other astrophysical systems.
Congratulations to Fehmi Yasin, who was awarded NSF Graduate Research Fellowship.
Congratulations to Alex Schachtner, who was accepted into the PhD program at University of Florida! He will begin as a Gator graduate student in Fall 2015.
Congratulations to Tyler Harvey and Jordan Pierce, who recently advanced to PhD candidacy! For their comprehensive exams, they successfully presented their respective research in our lab to a group of professors.
Jordan Chess won a poster award at MMM for his poster titled Employing Hermite Gaussian beams to probe magnetic materials with atomic resolution.
Congratulations to Alex Schachtner, who was awarded NSF REU at University of Florida working in Prof. Andrew Rinzler’s group on Investigation of Solution Processed Channel Layer Materials in Carbon-Nanotube Enabled Vertical Field Effect Transistors.
It was announced this summer that I received a 2013 Early Career Award from the U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) for the proposal to develop “Electron Microscopy with Vortex Beams Carrying Orbital Angular Momentum”. I’m very honored and humbled to receive this award, as this was among only a handful of projects selected out of 770 highly competitive proposals submitted …
The Oregon Country Fair (OCF) is a 3-day festival in wooded farmland outside of Eugene that attracts artists, inventors, performers, musicians, artisans, and merchants.
