Three from MSE win awards at microscopy and microanalysis 2013
Three Materials Science and Engineering researchers received awards at Microscopy and Microanalysis, the annual conference of the Microscopy Society of America (MSA) and the Microbeam Analysis Society (MAS), held August 4-8 in Indianapolis. Andrew Yankovich won a MAS Meeting Award for his contribution “Measuring Surface Atom Bond Length Contraction in Au and Pt Nanoparticles Using High-Precision STEM Imaging”. Fengyuan Shi won a travel grant to attend the meeting from the Midwest Microscopy and Microanalysis Society, the local MSA and MAS affiliate, for her contribution “MnMn/O Interface Termination at the Co2MnaSi/MgO Interface in Magnetic Tunnel Junctions Investigated by Scanning Transmission Electron Microscopy”. Jinwoo Hwang won a Post-doctoral Paper Award from MSA for his contribution “Computational Structure Refinement by Hybrid Reverse Monte Carlo Simulation Incorporating Fluctuation Electron Microscopy”. All three are current or former members of Materials Science and Engineering Professor Paul Voyles’ research group.
