Physics and Astronomy Department senior Boston Heaford has been accepted into the materials and nanotechnology engineering PhD program at NDSU, under Dr. Qifeng Zhang to do research on renewable energy technology. Sakurako Tani, another physics senior has been accepted into the NDSU PhD program – Physics.
The work of MSUM Physics/Sustainability/Chemistry majors Sakurako Tani, Salim Thomas, Melissa Foley, Gabe Buehler, and Abel Eshete was acknowledged in the international journal Solid State Ionics. The project seeks to understand the underlying physics of sodium ion conduction in glasses. The work has potential to improve sodium battery technology for use on an industrial scale in solar and wind farms. […]
