Graduate students Shruti Subramanian, Natalie Briggs and Kayla Cooley were awarded the Young Scientist Award, at the The 45th Conference on the Physics and Chemistry of Surfaces and Interfaces (PCSI – 45) January 14th – 18th in Hawaii. The annual PCSI conference is devoted to achieving a fundamental understanding of the physical, chemical, biological, structural, optical, magnetic and electrical properties of surfaces and interfaces. These studies include novel growth processes and interfacial phenomena, new characterization tools, transport, and functionality of the structures for future devices. The conference is designed in the manner of a workshop with generous amounts of discussion time included in the program to stimulate the exchange of new ideas. 

Subramanian and Briggs are advised by Dr. Joshua Robinson and Cooley is advised by Dr. Suzanne Mohney.
