Nick Weadock is a graduate student in the Department of Applied Physics and Materials Science at Caltech with expertise in thermodynamics and kinetics of metal hydrides. He is interested in understanding the phase transformations that occur during hydriding and dehydriding with the goal of mitigating the extreme strains that lead to decrepitation...
Cong Liu is a graduate student in the Lehigh Chemistry Department with expertise in the synthesis and characterization of mesoporous materials.  He is interested in the synthesis of hard-templated 1-dimensional diamond mesostructures using mesoporous α-alumina templates. His work involves multiple analytical techniques including small and wide...
Xiang Li is a graduate student in the Penn State Chemistry department with expertise in carbon nanomaterials synthesis and characterization.  She is interested in new precursor strategies for kinetically controlled syntheses of carbon nanothreads.  Xiang often travels to beamlines at major national and international neutron and x-ray facilities...
Two Carnegie Summer Scholars working on EFree research, Anne Davis (Caltech) and Keenan Brownsberger (Whitworth University), gave presentations on their research at Carnegie’s Broad Branch Road campus on August 21:   Anne Davis: Phase transitions in silicon quantum dots for solar energy conversion Keenan Brownsberger: Synthesis of palladium...
