From diabetes to roller coasters, student research recognized at UH contest
Date:1/30/2008

HOUSTON, Jan. 30, 2008 Improving data storage, impacting human health and strengthening structures are on the agenda for three students at the University of Houston pursuing research in superconductivity and advanced materials.

Showcasing these three impressive endeavors and many others, the 34th Semiannual Texas Center for Superconductivity at the University of Houston (TcSUH) Student Symposium recently gave science and engineering students a forum to show off original research.

Nine competitors gave 15-minute research presentations, followed by a brief question-and-answer period. A faculty panel judged each presenter on originality and quality of research, quality of presentation and skillful use of visual aids. The three students who won top honors included two from the College of Natural Sciences and Mathematics and one from the Cullen College of Engineering. First prize was awarded to Rajit Chaudhury, a physics doctoral student; second prize went to Carmen Reznik, a doctoral student in chemistry; and third prize went to Christiana Chang, an undergraduate student in mechanical engineering.

Rajit Chaudhury, whose TcSUH project leaders are UH Professor of Physics and T.L.L. Temple Chair of Science Paul C. W. Chu and Research Professor of Physics Bernd Lorenz, said that his winning presentation focuses on the magnetioelectric (or multiferroic) properties of bulk materials. In other words, his project has the potential to improve the fabrication of integrated circuitry used in data storage.

We have observed several important results in different systems and these materials bear the potential for applications as memory devices, Chaudhury said.

Chaudhury received his masters in physics from the Indian Institute of Technology in Mumbai and his undergraduate degree in physics at Ramkrishna Mission Vidyamandira, Belvr, Kolkata.
