Neutron Scattering Society of America elects UD professors Glyde and Wagner to fellowship program

March 6, 2014 - University of Delaware professors Henry Glyde and Norman Wagner have been selected as fellows of the Neutron Scattering Society of America (NSSA).

Dr. Hadjipanayis awarded grant from Samsung SDI Co. Ltd.

January 1, 2014 - Dr. George Hadjipanayis has been awarded a grant effective January 1, 2014 entitled "Rare Earth-Free Nanoparticles for High Performance Permanent Magnets". This research is focused on the synthesis of anisotropic rare earth-free Fe-Co(Ni) nanoparticles with high coercivity, which can be used for the development of rare earth-free high performance permanent magnets. The proposal presents viable and innovative approaches to produce anisotropic Fe-Co and MnBi alloy powders with high coercivity and magnetization.

Dr. Petit awarded grant from the Smithsonian Astrophysical Observataory

January 1, 2014 - Dr. Veronique Petit has been awarded a grant from the Smithsonian Astrophysical Observatory effective January 1, 2014 with the title, "Radiative Cooling in 2-D and 3-D Models of Magnetically Confined Wind Shocks". We propose a three-parameter magnetohydrodynamic (MHD) study of the effects of radiative cooling in magnetic massive stars involving cooling length, magnetic confinement, and stellar rotation.
