Woodward Family Endowment Supports NDEE Student Summer Research Experience

Grant Barthelmes, NDEE junior, is one of 20 students who participated in the summer 2019 NDnano Undergraduate Research Fellowship program. His project involved measurements with single-electron transistors, which are capable of measuring the motion of single electrons within molecules. Determining the position of an electron within a molecule will enable the use of molecules as electronic devices. Barthelmes worked under the guidance of NDEE professor and chair,Greg Snider.
