Laboratory group members Alex Selimov, Alejandro Zelaya, Lin Rossmann, and Eric Barker presented two research posters at the Summer Research Academy hosted by the Office of Undergraduate Research at UCF. This event is held over two and half days during the Summer for current and incoming students to get an understanding of university research. The participants get to meet with current faculty and students involved in research, find research opportunities, and for no charge earn one credit for work before, during and after the event.
Group members Alex Selimov and Alejandro Zelaya presented “Real Time Testing of High Temperature Aerospace Materials”. The posters investigation included using Piezospectroscopy, x-ray diffraction, and x-ray tomography for a better understanding on crystal structure specific interactions.
Lin Rossmann and Eric Barker presented “Piezospectroscopy for Non-Invasive Stress Detection”. This poster describes the applications for Piezospectroscopy through depicting early crack detection and provides data from experiments conducted at UCF on various types of alumina composite coatings.
