Barr and Spurgeon win MRS awards

Christopher Barr and Steven Spurgeon recently won awards for their research at the 2013 Fall MRS Meeting in Boston.

Barr’s poster, titled “Anisotropic Behavior of Radiation Induced Segregation with Grain Boundary Character and Grain Size in Model Fcc Ni-Cr Alloys,” was selected for a silver poster award in Symposium ZZ — Nanostructured Materials in Extreme Environments. The award consists of a certificate and a $100 honorarium.

Spurgeon was invited to present a talk, titled “Thickness-Dependent Crossover from Charge- to Strain-Mediated Magnetoelectric Coupling in Ferromagnetic/Piezoelectric Oxide Heterostructures,” and was awarded a gold graduate student research award. This prestigious award is given to only eight of 240 applicants and consists of a plaque and $400 honorarium.
