Sep 28, 2009:

The CMO network receives a U.S. Army Research Office STTR phase II contract together with J.A.Woollam Co. for design and application research of a new prototype commercial Terahertz Ellipsometer system.

Sep 9, 2009:

The National Science Foundation awards a grant to Dr. Mathias Schubert and 8 UNL co-PIs for support of the project "MRI: Development of an Optical Hall Effect Instrumentation for non-contact Nanostructure Electrical Characterization". The award is effective Oct 1, 2009, and expires Sept 30, 2011.

Sep 1, 2009:

We welcome our new PhD student Alexander Boosalis from UNL Electrical Engineering. Alexander is collaborating with Res. Prof. Dr. Tino Hofmann on materials research using THz ellipsometry.

Jun 1, 2009:

We welcome our new PhD student Brian Keith Rodenhausen from UNL Chemical Engineering. Brian will be investigating in-situ protein and biomolecular materials interaction with spatially-coherent nanostructured surfaces using ellipsometry and QCM-D techniques.
