Junior physics faculty lead the way
Attention to excellence in hiring and teaching has led to an impressive number of nationally recognized new faculty awards in the Department of Physics. The department, which has marked consistent growth in the past few years, boasts a remarkable five current National Science Foundation (NSF) awards, three of which are new for 2006.
Igor Zutic is working with another theoretical area of physics, spin transport and spintronic devices, which may lead to new advances in electronics using nanotechnology. His research is supported by the CAREER award, as well as a three-year grant from the U.S. Office of Naval Research.
Hao Zeng's CAREER funding, which began in February, will fund his condensed matter research of nanoscale materials and devices. He plans to combine nanotechnology and nanoscience into a curriculum for students as part of the NSF project.
