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.
