Graduate Students Attend National and International Workshops

Israel Perez, a second year graduate student in Materials Science and Engineering working with Professor Gary Rubloff, has been selected to attend a workshop on Transmission Electron Microscopy in Materials Science held at the Pan American Advanced Studies Institute at the Universidad de Chile in Santiago, Chile July 9-22, 2006. Mr. Perez was selected from a broad range of students from throughout the U.S. to attend the two week NSF-sponsored workshop for lectures on transmission electron microscopy (TEM) and gain hands-on experience with a FEI Technai 200 kV field TEM. The experience should come in handy when Mr. Perez returns, as the Clark School has recently installed a new JEOL 2100F field emission high resolution TEM in the NISP Lab in the Jeong H. Kim Engineering Building.

Chris Metting, a first year graduate student in MSE working with Professor R. M. Briber, will be attending the Joint Neutron Scattering School in Soft Condensed Matter and Structural Biology May 18-26 at the Los Alamos Neutron Scattering Center. Mr. Metting is planning on working on off-specular neutron reflectivity for his Ph.D. thesis. He was selected to attend Joint Neutron Scattering School to gain hands-on experience with various neutron scattering techniques at the Manuel Lujan Jr. Neutron Scattering Center at Los Alamos National Lab.
