Hoang Luong Finalst for 2021 ICMCTF Graduate Student AwardsJanuary 5, 2021
Luong was chosen by the AVS Advanced Surface Engineering Division (ASED) Awards Committee
The AVS Advanced Surface Engineering Division (ASED) Awards Committee has selected Hoang Luong as one of three finalists for the 2021 ICMCTF Graduate Student Awards.
The Advanced Surface Engineering Division (ASED) of the American Vacuum Society (AVS) provides a continuing forum for fostering the understanding of advanced surface engineering technologies. ASED brings together scientists and technologists from academia and industry, thereby merging research with application and promoting coating integration in materials design and engineering.
The ASED Awards Committee oversees the annual International Conference on Metallurgical Coatings and Thin Films (ICMCTF) Graduate Student Awards. ASED seeks to recognize students of exceptional ability who show promise for significant future achievement in ASED-related fields.
As a finalist for the Graduate Student Award, Luong will attend the April 2021 ICMCTF Conference in San Diego. All three finalists will be scheduled to speak at the conference, during which the winners of the Gold, Silver, and Bronze Awards will be determined.
Luong’s talk, The Magneto-Plasmonic Properties of Ag-Co Composite Nanostructures, investigates magneto-plasmonic properties of well-identified plasmonic nano-lattices (such as nanohole arrays and nano-triangle arrays), based on Ag-Co composite materials.
“It is truly an honor to be selected as one of the finalists for the 2021 ICMCTF Graduate Student Awards,” Luong says. “This greatly motivates me to work hard for my Ph.D. completion.”
