Congratulations to Summer 2016 REU student, Kirstin Schauble, for winning 1st place in Notre Dame's national undergraduate nanotech research competition! Kirstin was selected as a top 13 finalist and then presented her research (both an oral talk and poster presentation) at the University of Notre Dame in Oct. 2016, where she took the top prize. Her project, titled, "Nucleating high-k dielectrics on MoS2 using plasma-enhanced atomic layer deposition (PEALD)," is part of the ongoing work of Kate Price (PhD student) in the Franklin group. See here for more info. Great work, Kirstin!
