This award recognises the contribution to the field of materials science. The award was presented during the Faraday Discussions meeting on Nanoalloys celebrated in September 2022 at the historical building of the Royal Society of Chemistry. During this meeting Dr. Jose Yacaman delivered the introductory plenary talk “Advances in alloys at… Read more
Two members of the APMS faculty, Prof. Ryan Behunin and Prof. John Gibbs, obtained the NSF career award which is one of the most prestigious of the agency. Those awards are granted to outstanding young researchers to support their career. The two awards amount to around $1,000,000.
Congratulations to John and Ryan !!!
Dr. ‘Sam’ Sumant Sarkar, who successfully defended his Ph.D. dissertation this past October, has been awarded the Outstanding Doctoral Student in the Department of Applied Physics and Materials Science. Sam’s Ph.D. research focused on the fabrication and analysis of nanohelical structures that exhibit chiral optical properties under the guidance of Prof. John Gibbs. His work was highlighted in The NAU Review earlier this year. Sam is the first student to graduate from NAU’s… Read more
APMS Ph.D. student Maria Bolar is one of the first two NAU students to receive the prestigious Science Graduate Student Research Award from the Dept. of Energy. Maria and her fellow award recipient, Megan Foley from Biological Sciences, are two of the 65 students nationwide that received the award. NAU is one of 47 nationwide universities and the only Arizona university to receive the award. The award will enable her to spend several months performing neutron scattering experiments at… Read more
Professor Miguel José Yacamán is the co-author of the chapter, “Transmission Electron Microscopy of Multimetallic Nanoparticles,” in the recently published Nanoalloys From Fundamentals to Emergent Applications. The chapter covers the following topics:
- TEM of Nanostructures: Imaging, Diffraction, and Spectrometry
- Electron Holography
- Bimetallic Nanoparticles
- Trimetallic Nanoparticles
- In Situ Study of Bimetallic Nanoparticles
Funded through a National Science Foundation grant of more than $4 million, ¡MIRA!/APMS are teaming up with Arizona State University and other regional partners in a five-year effort to expand the reach of the Nanotechnology Collaborative Infrastructure Southwest (NCI-SW) to the communities of northern Arizona and the Four Corners region. NCI-SW is the southwest regional node of the Read more
