Tufts team wins best poster award
School of Engineering researchers win best poster award at the North American Conference on Molecular Beam Epitaxy.
A team from Tufts Renewable Energy and Applied Photonics (REAP) Labs – first author Amanda Lemire, a joint PhD student in mechanical engineering and materials science and engineering, with Research Assistant Professor Kevin Grossklaus and Professor and Department Chair Tom Vandervelde of the Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering – recently won the Best Poster award at the North American Molecular Beam Epitaxy (NAMBE) conference.
The winning poster, titled “Characterizing SiGeSn Stability by Temperature Varying Spectroscopic Ellipsometry,” hung in the Novel Materials section of the conference space. The team used spectroscopic ellipsometry to study thin film materials, specifically GeSn (Germanium-tin) films, which are known for their useful properties in microelectronic semiconductor devices among other uses.
The North American Conference on Molecular Beam Epitaxy (NAMBE) is an international forum focused on advancements in molecular beam epitaxy research — a specific subsection of thin film materials research with applications in semiconductors, lasers, and nanotechnologies.
