April 2007

Manu Shamsa receives the Silver Medal Award for his research presentation at the annual meeting of the Materials Research Society (MRS) in San Francisco. Manu presented a paper entitled “Thermal Conductivity of Nanocrystalline Diamond Films: Effects of the Nitrogen Doping and Boundary Scattering.” This work was carried out at NDL in collaboration with researchers from the Prokhorov General Physics Institute of the Russian Academy of Sciences in Moscow, Russia. Measurements conducted in NDL elucidated the physical mechanisms of thermal conduction in the nanocrystalline diamond films. Finalists in the MRS graduate research competition were students from the best US and international universities such as Harvard University, UC-Berkeley, Cornell University, UCLA, University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign, Carnegie Mellon University, Purdue University, UCSD, Arizona State University and University of Tokyo. The annual MRS Spring Meeting in San Francisco is the world’s largest and one of the most prestigious conferences in the field of materials science and engineering.
