Two NTFL graduate students, Erich Radauscher and Isvar Cordova, had the opportunity to give invited talks to the Drexel University Department of Materials Science and Engineering. The projects currently underway within the NTFL were discussed with current and interested collaborators. More specifically, Erich presented on his research, "Integrated Carbon Nanotube Field-Emission Electron Sources: An Enabling Technology for Vacuum Microelectronics and Miniaturized Sensor Development," while Isvar presented his research, "Atomic Layer Deposition of TiO2 on Transparent Conductive Oxide Nanoparticles for Solar Energy Conversion."
This trip was made possible from a special grant that Duke MRS President, Erich, and Drexel MRS President, Katie Van Aken, were awarded from the Materials Research Society. The pilot program, entitled the University Graduate Student Exchange, aims to give graduate students the opportunity to give invited talks at collaborative universities with the goal of sharing knowledge in their field and stimulating new collaborations. Duke will welcome two Drexel graduate students in November as part of the 2nd half of this program.
