Undergraduate researchers Alejandro Mercado and William Shattuck received grants from the Honors College to support their work on WSe2 quantum dots and GeSe devices, respectively.
The UA Physics Department began a new research-based candidacy exam for PhD students this year, and Shiva, Josh, and Jeb were the first students to pass it!
We moved into a new lab in the Nano Institute back in February. It's about time to post some pictures!
We are happy to have three REU students working in the lab this summer:
Hamilton Johnson (physics, Ouachita Baptist)
Joseph Matson (µEP, Hendrix)
Grace Woods (physics, UC Santa Cruz)
Congratulations to undergraduate student Alejandro Mercado for winning an Honors College grant to work on the dichalcogenide quantum dot project!
The Churchill Lab is a new research group in the physics department at the University of Arkansas. We will fabricate and measure quantum devices: nanoscale electronic and optoelectronic devices with properties that are enabled or augmented by quantum effects. Starting out, we will focus on devices using atomically thin 2D materials including transition metal dichalcogenides, graphene, and hexagonal boron nitride. Contact Hugh Churchill for more information or to join us!
