Physics Undergraduates Present Research
at International Conference

(L to R) Katelyn Goetz, Claire McLellan, and Danny David at the Plastic Electronics Week Conference in Dresden, Germany

Physics majors Claire McLellan (2012), Daniel David (2012) and Katelyn Goetz (2011), working with Prof. Oana Jurchescu at Wake Forest University Center for Nanotechnology and Molecular Materials, have presented their research results at the "Plastic Electronics Week", in Dresden, Germany. This Conference focuses on innovation in electronics, brings together professionals both from academia and industry, and is one of the most prestigious conferences in the field. This year's program included invited speakers such as the 2010 Nobel Prize in Physics laureate Dr. K. Novoselov from University of Manchester, UK, and Dr. Chung, Director of Advanced OLED Technology Team at Samsung Mobile Display.
