Richard Gerst and Nicholas Harmon "Present" at Conference
Posted: Monday, March 16, 2020
Dr. Harmon, assistant professor of physics, and Richard Gerst, senior physics/math major, were scheduled to give talks at the American Physical Society's (APS) March Meeting in Denver, CO during the first week of March. Unfortunately the conference was cancelled. Their presentations were made public on the APS abstract in lieu of live presentation.
The work by Richard was conducted last summer and over the course of the last two semesters thanks to UExplore. Richard studied how electrons move through organic semiconductors and focused on how their spin (internal magnetism of an electron) changed while they moved. A large portion of the work was to develop and improve simulations of the phenomena. Richard's contributed presentation slides, "Simulating Spin Relaxation in Organic Semiconductors", can be found at http://meetings.aps.org/Meeting/MAR20/Session/A11.3.
The presentation by Dr. Harmon, "Magnetoresistance Measurements as an Alternative to Magnetic Resonance Methods for Studying Paramagnetic Defects", dealt with a new technique to explore defects in materials. The technique is an alternative to magnetic resonance (e.g. MRI or EPR) that offers several advantages when studying defects in electronic devices (like transistors). Dr. Harmon's invited presentation slides and talk can be found at http://meetings.aps.org/Meeting/MAR20/Session/S19.3.
