2022 CMP End of Summer Poster Session

On Tuesday August 23rd the Center for Materials Processing (CMP) held its End of Summer Poster Session where students whose research contains an element of materials processing competed for recognition.  The event featured twenty graduate students and twenty-seven undergraduate students from various departments including Chemical and Biomolecular Engineering (CBE), Materials Science and Engineering (MSE), and Nuclear Engineering (NE).  The judging pool was comprised of research staff from Oak Ridge National Laboratory (ORNL), the Institute for Advanced Materials and Manufacturing, the Tickle College of Engineering Departments of Materials Science and Engineering (MSE) and Mechanical, Aerospace, and Biomedical Engineering (MABE), and Spark Innovation Startups.

Graduate Students Awards:

  • 1st Place – Kimberly Pestovich – MSE – advised by Dr. Mariya Zhuravleva “Bright Ideas: Luminescent dopant concentration studies to optimize light yield of Rb4CaI6:Eu scintillator”
  • 2nd Place Yajie Zhao– MSE – advised by Dr. Steven Zinkle “Depth dependent alpha prime precipitate distribution in ion irradiated Fe18Cr alloys”
  • 3rd Place –Xuesong Fan–MSE – advised by Prof. Peter Liaw “Design of Nano-precipitates-strengthened Face-centered-cubic High-entropy Alloys”

Undergraduate Student Awards:

  • 1st Place – Justin Edaugal – CBE – advised by Dr. Rigoberto Advincula “Digital Light Processing (DLP) Printing of Polymer-based Graphene Oxide Nanocomposite as an Efficient Antimicrobial Coating for Surgical Implants”
  • 2nd Place – Garrett Fields – ME – advised by Dr. Hahn Choo “In-situ observations of varying laser power on meltpool dynamics and fluid flow during single line-melting on a Ti-6Al-4V alloy: A dynamic synchrotron x-ray radiography study”
  • 3rd Place – James Pierce – MSE – advised by Dr. Mariya Zhuravleva “CsSrCl3 as an Inorganic Scintillator for High-Energy X-ray Radiographys”
