Campbell Wins DOE Graduate Student Research Award

PhD candidate Daniel Campbell has been selected to receive the U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) Office of Science Graduate Student Research (SCGSR) award for the proposed research project, “Ambient and Pressure-Grown TiSe2 under Extreme Conditions”. The SCGSR program prepares graduate students for science, technology, engineering, or mathematics (STEM) careers critically important to the DOE Office of Science mission, providing supplemental awards to outstanding U.S. graduate students to pursue part of their graduate thesis research at a DOE laboratory/facility in areas that address scientific challenges central to the Office of Science mission. The selection of Campbell for the SCGSR award is in recognition of outstanding academic accomplishments and the merit of the SCGSR research proposal, and reflects his potential to advance the Ph.D. studies and make important contributions to the mission of the DOE Office of Science. Campbell, one of only 52 award recipients from all disciplines of the DOE Office of Science, will conduct his research project at Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory in collaboration with Dr. Jason Jeffries, Staff Physicist and Group Leader for the High-Pressure Physics Group in the Physics Division. Congrats Daniel!!!

 

Rick Greene Featured on Inside Science

CNAM member and Emeritus Director Rick Greene has been featured on an Inside Science video about superconductivity, stemming from a special APS 2017 March Meeting session, "60 Years since BCS and 30 Years since Woodstock". Speaking about CNAM's research into high-temperature superconductivity, he describes superconductivity as “an emergent property of materials. It’s not something you can predict by knowing how a few atoms work or a few electrons work.Inside Science is an editorially independent nonprofit science news service run out of the American Institute of Physics and supported by a coalition of underwriters, producing breaking news stories, features, essays, op-eds, documentaries, animations, and news videos.
