Prof. Joseph P. Heremans, mechanical and aerospace engineering professor and Ohio Eminent Scholar, wrote a paper selected as the cover article for the October Nature Reviews Materials journal. One of the paper’s illustrations, designed by administrator Renee Ripley, Thermal Materials Laboratory, is featured on the cover. Read more…
We are pleased to announce that after a thorough internal and external review process, awards have been made to fund exceptionally promising, innovative materials research on campus through the 2017 OSU Materials Research Seed Grant Program.
The area targeted for 2017 was PROTO-IRGs. Congratulations to:
- Jinwoo Hwang, Department of Materials Science and Engineering, “Structure, Defects, and Emergent Properties at Magnetic Oxide Interfaces.”
- Mohit Randeria, Department of Physics, “Spin Textures in Chiral Magnetic Materials.”
This weekend, Lake Shore Cryotronics was highlighted in the Columbus Dispatch. CEM Director P. Chris Hammel was interviewed on the company’s importance in the scientific community.

The Distinguished Scholar Award, established in 1978, recognizes exceptional scholarly accomplishments by senior professors who have compiled a substantial body of research, as well as younger faculty members who have demonstrated great scholarly potential. CEM is proud to share that Prof. Len Brillson was one of six to receive the award in 2017.Distinguished Scholars receive an honorarium and a research grant. Congratulations Len!

The February 2017 issue of Physics Today features an article on Ohio State’s APS Bridge Program: A Bridge Between Undergraduate and Doctoral Degrees.
“If we, as a community, want to make sure there are opportunities for everyone, then we need to recognize that some of the problems we must overcome are found outside J. D. Jackson’s Classical Electrodynamics. Some problems affect students in ways that we probably cannot immediately perceive. Fortunately, once we are made aware of them, many of these issues can be overcome relatively easily using resources and providing attention to students. Supporting students who didn’t get the same encouragement that many of us did and adopting a more nuanced approach during admissions, looking at potential rather than just accomplishments, are practices that will benefit everyone. URM students may not immediately see themselves as a part of our community, but with a little tweaking of our practices, they can join us in this exciting pursuit we call physics.”
CEM is a devoted supporter of the OSU Bridge Program; several Bridge students conduct CEM research.
