Eduardo, the first graduate student who joined the group, just 4 years ago, has successfully defended his thesis! Congrats Dr Villarreal! And as per Rice tradition, the day got capped with a tie cutting ceremony at Valhalla!
Sadegh and Emilie, in collaboration with John Biggins (Cambridge), just published a paper on Magnesium nanoplasmonics! The paper is out in Nano Letters and has been covered by AAAS!
A big thanks to the applied physics students that visited last weekend, and had a blast at the rodeo! See you all in the Fall!
The Ringe group plans on recruiting motivated PhD students in the departments of materials science and nanoengineering, chemistry, and applied physics! We are looking for students interested in the optical properties of 2D materials as well as structure-function correlations in … Continue reading
It’s out! The Science Advances paper on plasmonic drawbridges is out! Emilie and Dayne collaborated with several plasmonic groups at Rice in this study led by the Landes lab! Another high impact publication for the group! Congrats Dayne! Reversible redox … Continue reading
Prof/ Ringe’s octopod paper, published yesterday in Scientific Reports, made the news, and was even featured as top story on the NSF website!
Prof. Ringe’s work on Au/Pd octopods has been published in Scientific Reports! By mapping the plasmon resonances and the composition of Au/Pd octopods with STEM-EELS and STEM-EDS, this research shows that Au particles incorporating a catalytically active but heavily damped metal, Pd, sustain multiple … Continue reading
The Houston Chronicle just released their article on the new EM facility! A great true story! http://www.houstonchronicle.com/news/houston-texas/houston/article/With-10-million-in-her-pocket-Rice-scientist-6364149.php?t=f8a61a7f64&cmpid=twitter-premium
Our department is growing! Yesterday, the MSNE majors attended a major advising event headed by Prof. Ringe and the MSNE undergraduate society at Baker College Commons. Missed it? Prof. Ringe will be in Wiess Commons tonight (April 9th) 8-9 pm!
The 2015 National Research Foundation-Graduate Research Fellowships results are out! Dayne and Eduardo are both recipients of this coveted award! Congrats!
