Kerry Wang Receives "Best Student Presentation" Award

July 3, 2014 - Kerry Wang, University of Minnesota Materials Science graduate student, received one of two "Best Student Presentation" awards at the 7th Annual Academic Research Initiative (ARI) Program Review, held at the national Conference Center in Leesburg, VA, from May 24-26, 2014. Kerry's presentation, "Modeling the migration of second-phase particles in CZT via temperature gradient zone melting", described his initial work on the theoretical modeling of a post-growth processing technique that can be applied to disperse second-phase tellurium particles in crystals of cadmium zinc telluride, thereby improving their properties for use in gamma radiation detectors. Kerry Wang is advised by CEMS faculty member Jeffrey Derby.
