The Center for E3S congratulates three undergraduate students who were interns with the 2013 E3S REU and Transfer-to-Excellence REU programs as they prepare to present their research at peer-reviewed conferences.
Two papers have been accepted for presentation at the March Meeting of the American Physical Society that will be held March 3 -7 in Denver, Colorado. Victoria Xu, currently a Physics senior at UC Santa Barbara, will present orally a paper on Directional Coupler for Quantum Measurement. She undertook the research in summer 2013 as an E3S REU intern in the laboratory of Professor I. Siddiqi, UC Berkeley. Another 2013 E3S REU intern, Satcher Hsieh, currently an Electrical Engineering and Physics junior at Washington University at St. Louis, will present a poster on Modification of a Scanning Tunneling Microscope for Measurement of Ballistic Electron Emission Microscopy. He performed the research in the laboratory of Professor J. Bokor, UC Berkeley.
One paper, based on research conducted as part of the 2013 Transfer-to-Excellence REU program, has been accepted for oral presentation at the 247th American Chemical Society Meeting that will be held on March 16-20 in Dallas, Texas. Jing Jin, a community college student at Pasadena City College, will present Fabrication of a Thin Film Transistor (TFT) Based Biosensor for Antioxidants, research that she undertook at the laboratory of Professor Ana Claudia Arias, UC Berkeley.
The Center extends best wishes to these 2013 REU interns in their presentations at the two leading physics and chemistry conferences.
