Gregory Freihofer wins 2nd place at the SAMPE CAMX student paper competition
We are proud to announce that Estefania Bohorquez has won second place in the Best Poster Award at Thermal Barrier Coatings V, a conference held by Engineering Conferences International (ECI). Her poster, titled “Raman studies on EB-PVD 7 wt% yttria-stabilized zirconia coatings with CMAS deposits,” is the result of a collaboration with the German Aerospace Center (DLR).
The conference was held in Irsee, Germany from June 24 – 29, 2018. This is the first time the lab has been represented at this event, which occurs every 4 years and is highly competitive.
The collaboration with DLR developed from the NSF International Research Experience for Students (IRES) program. As part of IRES, Estefania was one of a group of students who spent a summer conducting research at a DLR facility. To read more about IRES, click here.
