Breakthrough measurements/theory of vibrating atoms in nanostructures ushers in new class of technology
Nick Richardson, an undergraduate physics student at Fairfield University, Fairfield, CT, who spent the summer of 2020 as a research intern in our group under the National Science Foundation Research Education for Undergraduates (REU) program, received a prestigious Barry Goldwater Scholarship and Excellence in Education Award for undergraduates in the sophomore and junior level for his academic record at Fairfield and for his research experience at Vanderbilt where he was co-mentored by Dr. Andrew O’Hara and Professor Pantelides. Nick did a brilliant job in his nanoscience research project, which continued in the fall and spring semester and led to a talk at the prestigious American Physical Society annual meeting in March 2021. A paper on the project is currently being written.
