Hanna Schamis will be the first RSSEL graduate student to conduct research at ITER during her five month internship opportunity at the world’s largest fusion experiment in Spring 2017. Under the supervision of Gregory de Temmerman, Coordinating Scientist Plasma Edge & PWI Science and Operations Department (SCOD)/Science Division (SD)/Tungsten Divertor & Plasma-Wall Interactions Section (TDPW), Hanna will be working on […]
Congratulations to Brandon Holybee, who has been selected to receive the prestigious Lam Research Corporation Scholarship. Lam Research Corporation is an American corporation that engages in the design, manufacture, marketing, and service of semiconductor processing equipment used in the fabrication of integrated circuits.
NPRE’s graduate students Felipe Bedoya and Hanna Schamis have been highlighted for their work at the Princeton Plasma Physics Laboratory (PPPL) this year. Felipe Bedoya was a visiting graduate student at PPPL during the last NSTX-U run period, during which he took thesis data with the Materials Analysis and Particle Probe (MAPP) developed at RSSEL. Bedoya used the […]
