This award leverages existing NSF funding, including a recent NSF-MRI award, for which Dr. Strauf is co-PI, supporting the purchase of an ICP etcher. Work will also be carried out at Brookhaven National Lab under a granted user proposal. Graduate student researchers, supported in part by this CAREER Award, will work at both Stevens and Brookhaven's world-class facilities.
"Prof. Strauf is doing research at the forefront of physics, and this CAREER award implies that his peers in the scientific community fully recognize the high quality of his work," reports Dr. Knut Stamnes, Department Director for Physics and Engineering Physics. "He has built a first-class research laboratory at Stevens, mentors six graduate students with whom he publishes his work in letter journals, and motivates and inspires all members of our department and the Stevens nanotechnology community through his dedication, persistence, and perseverance."
As part of Stevens large effort in nanoscale research, the university offers the interdisciplinary Nanotechnology Graduate Program, in which Dr. Strauf is actively involved teaching core courses. His CAREER Award will further support the development of a Nanophysics Summer School, which will introduce nanotechnology research in physics to undergraduates as well as regional K-12 science teachers.
