Physicists receive $3.3 million in grants

Ohio University physicists have received a total of $3.3 million, in two separate grants from the National Science Foundation, for international collaborative research, the university announced Monday.

The grant will support a 10-week travel abroad program for Ohio University undergraduate and graduate students, as well as post-doctoral fellows, at the University of Hamburg and the Universidad de Buenos Aires.

"The international collaboration will expose our students to international nanoscience research environments. We selected these two foreign partners because of their expertise in the areas we're working in — nanomagnetism and nanospintronics," said Smith, the project director on the grant and director of Ohio University's Nanoscale and Quantum Phenomena Institute.
