On Friday, November 9th graduate students Kat Horvath and Raul Vyas presented posters the annual Carolina Science Symposium for the second year in a row. Kat presented research on "Designing a Cycloidal Mass Analyzer to Detect Perfluorocarbon Tracers for Environmental Sensing" and Raul presented on the "Effect of PMMA Encapsulation on Noise Reduction in Carbon Nanotube Field Emission." Kat took home third place for her poster presentation. The Carolina Science Symposium is sponsored by the American Vacuum Society and RTNN. The symposium highlights research completed at Duke University, North Carolina State University, University of North Carolina, and North Carolina A&T State University.
