Irene Calizo and Suchismita Ghosh have received 2nd and 3rd place awards respectively in the Best Collegiate Graduate Poster Competition at The Society of Women Engineers (SWE) National Conference held October 22 – 27 in Nashville, TN. Ms. Calizo’s poster “Robust Micro-Raman Spectroscopic Identification and Characterization of Single Atomic Layers of Graphene” presents the results of the investigation of the properties of a unique new materials system – graphene – consisting of a single atomic layer of carbon atoms. Ms. Ghosh’s poster “Measurement of the Thermal Conductivity of the Nanocrystalline Diamond Films by the Transient Plane Source Technique” describes the results of her study of heat conduction in nanostructured materials important for the electronic industry. The finalists for the research poster competition, sponsored by IBM and Rockwell corporations, were selected from a nation-wide field of research abstracts. The posters, judged by the representatives of leading companies, government agencies and faculty, described original research with applications in engineering. Attracting over 5,000 people, including 250 exhibitors, the SWE National Conference is the largest and most comprehensive career advancement event for women engineers.
