Congratulations to Henry Castillo on his successful PhD defense!
Henry presented his defense seminar and exam by Zoom video conferencing (a first for our group) on May 7, 2020. Henry gave a talk about “Self-assembly at Solution/Solid Interfaces: Fundamental Assembly Mechanisms and Novel Molecular Design to Promote Structure.”
Toby, Eman, David, and Steve travel to Diamond Light Source
In August, Toby, Eman, David, and Steve traveled to the Diamond Light Source in the United Kingdom to conduct X-ray Standing Wave Spectroscopy experiments on Vanadium-ligand complexes on surfaces. The goal of the experiment was to measure the height change of the V atoms relative to the Au surface upon adsorption of oxygen.
Congratulations to Miao Wang on his successful PhD defense!
Miao presented his dissertation to his committee on July 29, 2019 and successfully defended his work. His presentation, “Study of Metal-Ligand Complexation at Metal and Metal-Oxide Surfaces by Vibrational Spectroscopy,” was outstanding! Congratulations, Miao!
