We are pleased to announce that Zachary Stein has won Best Poster Award while representing our laboratory at the Irsee Thermal and Environmental Barrier Coatings VI conference. This conference was held in Irsee, Germany from June 19 – 24, 2022 and occurs once every 4 years. While at the conference, Zac presented his poster titled “Non-Destructively Capturing CMAS Degradation of EB-PVD Thermal Barrier Coatings through 3D Confocal Raman Renderings”. Zac, a former a Fulbright Fellow and current NDSEG fellow, presented research conducted as part of the UCF and DLR (German Aerospace Center) collaboration on high temperature materials funded by a National Science Foundation International Research Experiences for Students (IRES) program.
This work was result of international collaboration with the German Aerospace Center (DLR) as well as with Dr. Laurene Tetard from the Nanoscience Technology Center at UCF and was made possible through National Science Foundation IRES.
